Kalemani, speaking at the launch of a pilot project of phase one of the program for Ubungo and Mikocheni residents said that the program was in line with the national agenda to reduce the use of imported liquid gas and charcoal.
President of Tanzania, John Magufuli has promised to turn the country into a middle-income industrial economy by 2025.
The country is in the process of introducing a mega hydropower plant that will produce 2100 megawatts which, which will be located at Stiegler’s Gorge along the Rufiji River in the Selous Game Reserve.
Tanzania has reserves of more than 57 trillion cubic feet of natural gas but faces periodic power shortages as it relies on hydropower dams that experience a decline in water levels caused by climate change.
