Laos to Experience Electricity Shortage During Hot Season

Electricity generation will not be sufficient to supply all areas in Laos during times of peak consumption from March to June, according to authorities, who are urging the public to cut energy usage during this period.

The Ministry of Energy and Mines has announced that less power can be generated while reservoirs are only half full, Vientiane Times reported.

In particular, Electricite du Laos anticipates that factories in the capital of Vientiane would be affected the most from the expected energy shortage.
