(KPL) Electricite du Laos plans to construct 38 more electricity substations nationwide by 2025 in order to ensure sufficient availability of electricity in the country, especially in rural and remote areas.

Of the total number, 15 stations will be 115/22 kv, 11 stations will be 230/115/22 kv and 12 stations will be equipped with 500/230/115/22 kv, according to Director General of Electicite du Laos, Mr Sisavath Thiravong.

In addition, Electicite du Laos will install at least 6,000 km of high voltage power lines over the next ten years.

Ten years from now, residents from more than 1,000 villages that have been living without electricity will gain permanent access to electricity, Mr Sisavath confirmed.
