South Sudan has the lowest per capita electricity consumption in Africa, 1 to 3 kWh. This situation is mainly attributed to the underdeveloped energy infrastructure in the young nation, which has been severely impacted by decades of civil wars.

In a statement extended to Sudan Tribune, the SPG said the signed a Memorandum of Understanding aims to develop the generation, transmission and distribution spaces of electricity across the country.

"We are already working with the Republic of South Sudan (RSS) to develop a dedicated crude oil processing plant to guarantee steady and adequate supplies to the power plants as and when needed," said the SPG Managing Director, Kola Adesina

Also, Juba and the Nigerian company would collaborate to develop transmission backbone infrastructure and the establishment of the grid code.

There will be further collaboration between the two parties on the Environmental Impact Study, Load Evacuation Study and overall project development.

In April 2018, South Sudan installed equipment at a 100MW power plant in Juba.

Dhieu Mathok Diing Wol Minister of Energy and Dams, at the time, stated that the power plant in Juba would cover over 21% of the country’s 500MW needs in electricity.

In October 2017, Juba and Kampala signed an agreement to supply power to South Sudan’s border towns of Kaya and Nimule.

    Good news for our country. Everything is moving on the right direction in our country. Let jubaone, Eastern and Rhino start licking their wounds. Thomas Cirillo is this shit or Dario is that shit will not stop our country from moving. Majority of our people want peace and development. Take your internet campaign for war to the monkeys and shut up there.

      When jienges turn to Nigerians as investors, we could as well bring in Somali al-shabab to train primitive luakjiengs on discipline. That is how tailless chimps have turned the SS into a shithole. Perhaps jienges should take Nigerians to their junk states. Equatorians don’t need Nigerianns. We are good enough.

                  their so-called Abeshas (so-called ethiopia), their cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan or Bantus and some of their creepy allies in between? Who really says? No one Mr. Jubaone piece of trash. The owners are here. The Dinkas/Monyjiengs of the Sudan have taken back their country. Take it our leave. We are going to occupy Kenya, and kill all the the evil white people in Central Kenya>>>

And we are going to settle our scores with our enemies once and for all. We are the ancient Egyptians. We may have some problems with Germany in Nabibia, otherwise, you fools are wasting your damned times and our times.

                Mr. jubaone piece of trash,
                Mr. Winston Churchill of evil infested Island of England once proposed that the evil juus (so-called israelis), were to be "resettled in Uganda". The evils would have have dead. Thew Dinkas/Monyjiengs of the Sudan are back Mr. jubaone piece of trash. There we have informed you fools.

                  Uganda, Kenya, South Africa, Nigeria, Malawi, Rwanda, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Ghana and other countries are so-called commonwealth countries. But our South Sudan, that is not going happen under the sun. We are going to bomb these vermins out of our country once & for all. Not only South Sudan, but most of our Abesh (so-called ethiopia), Djibouti, North Sudan, Saudi Arabia, evil juus (so-called israel)>
