Chapter 15 - Energy
15-3 Electricity

Electricity generation

The electricity generating infrastructure is inadequate. Major upgrading is needed and there has been some work done on it since the end of the Saddam Hussein regime, but it is not at all clear how much work has been done and at what cost. This is essential management information that should be easily accessible to the public.

A major program to create adequate electric generating capacity should be a priority and done efficiently to the highest of standards.

Electric grid

The expansion of a nationwide electric grid is clearly desirable. This requires substantial capital funds, but the advantages are huge and long term.

The lack of electricity in poor places is a chronic problem. The technology exists to have adequate electricity supplies, and to distribute electricity to where it is needed. It takes investment, and it takes a reasonable approach to profit expectations. The key requirement is that electricity investment and electricity management and operations are done efficiently, ethically and without being dominated by greed and corruption from any quarter.

Rural distribution

The cost of rural distribution is high, but the value is substantial. Haiti should make an investment in rural distribution so that its remote communities have a chance to move forward without being constrained unduly by the lack of electricity.
