Acting Managing Director, Carolyn Blacklock, received the payment from the Member for Okapa District, Saki Saloma.
This project will be achieved through the Electrification Partnership Project with PNG Power. Blacklock said more than 150,000 lives will benefit from this electrification project.
“Lots and lots of schools, churches and health clinics will benefit from power along the way,” she said.
PNG Power will run transmission lines as well as connecting distribution lines directly into people’s houses.
