Owers’ corner lit up by PPL

A K2.6 million project by the New Zealand government saw the launch of the power line extension project at Vesulogo village yesterday.

Construction started on the rural on grid extension project in April last year in the Koiari area.

The 22 kilovolts powerline extension covers 12.8km, connecting more than 200 homes.

An exercise that would have cost more than K1,000 per household to connect power; for those along the Bisiatabu to Owers’ Corner, the connection is free of charge.
