At least 68 sites for building of mini-hydroelectric powers, meant to reach 100 % of power supply to population have been identified, a source of the sector announced.

The administrator of the Regulating Institute of Electric Sector (Irse), Eduardo Nelumba, told so to Angop, at the end of a seminar of the Regulation of the Angola's Energy Sector, promoted by Irse.
The mini-hydrics will be constructed by the Ministry of Water and Energy, being that the tender for execution will take place soon.
Eduardo Nelumba also said that from the legislative point of view they have to work, to adjust the general law on electricity to the new challenges.
Statistics show that less than 30 % of the Angolan population has access to electricity.
