The Minister of Energy and Dams says the Juba electrification project is nearly completed and is asking the public to register for supply.
Dhieu Mathok told journalists in Juba on Monday that 98% of electric poles to extend cables across the city have been installed.
Mathok says significant progress has also been made in planting poles in residential areas and is urging the public in Juba to register and get their prepaid meters connected.
The Minister cautions that the number of registered consumers determines when the supply will be switched on, adding that only three people have turned up for the registration process that was announced two months ago.
The government in April last year installed equipment at a newly built 100 Mega Watt power plant in Juba, which is expected to increase access to electricity from the current 1% to 21% by 2020.
