the electricity distribution departments
of the Local Authorities,
Regional Councils and NamPower.
2. Whose initiative is the REDs?

National Development Plan, the
Ministry of Mines and Energy has formulated
an Energy Policy White Paper

the reorganization of the electricity
distribution industry through the formation
of REDs as a means of improving
service delivery and efficiency in
the electricity sector.
3. Why REDs?
Through the formation of REDs, the
supply and distribution of electricity
will be done in a more efficient manner
which will ultimately benefit the endusers.
