Ethiopia to start exporting Power to Sudan
Ethiopia said, preparations are underway to start exporting electric power to Sudan after rain falls boos hydroelectric power dams in the country, Bloomberg reports. The plan is to export up to 200 Megawatts to Sudan and up to 150 megawatts may be exported to Djibouti.
Gilegl Gibe II is also expected to resume operation after it suffered a tunnel collapse shortly after it was inaugurated earlier this year. Gibe II has a generating capacity of 420 MW. Tana Beles, the largest hydropower in the country and Tekeze is also expected to be at full capacity following recent rains. The three plants produce a combined 1,180 megawatts of power.

We don’t care ethiopia export power or not because at end the money goes to the packet of meles and tplf …..
People of ethiopia get 0 benefit from this crop.

Mele is agent for sudan,eritera,and Egypt..
First light out ur house then export it.
Long live ethiopia and mangest H/miuram
I hope bread will be next!
Good job Meles Zenawi. Now we need to keep an eye on Shabia/Ginbot-7/Al-shabab so they don’t blow our tunnels.
keep up a good job!!First country. good job!!!
The Sudan and Djibouti revenue will be wired to Meles and Azeb Bank accounts in Europe and China. It is not going to matter the peasants in the countryside.
Do the Ethiopian people have electricity before we give away for pennies for neighbore countries???
This is really amazing news for Ethiopia. I am sure the decapitated head anti Ethiopian diaspora elements will choked when they heard this fantastic news.
Now tell me if EPRDF government is bad government for the country? I know Mengistu was indeed governed the country as same amount of years like EPRDF,but instead of development actually the country not only went down rather the country was totally a mass and bankrupt.
Now here we go Ethiopian national electric power started powering countries like Sudan and Djibouti. Of course next year the flow will continued to Kenya as well.
Poor Eritrea should we given an humanitarian electric aid to Eritrea or let them die by biting of massive of rats in the dark? you tell me.
I love Meles Zenawi….Yeha
This is real PROGRESS!!! Lets hope for the day Ethiopia becomes the major agro producer and exporter.
With the money we get from exporting power to Sudan, we can build Gibe 3 ourselves even if the donors or the banks refuse to help!!!
ኢትዮጵያ ለዘላለም ትኑር
I commend the Ethiopian government Thank you keep up the good work.
GO ETHIOPIA GO !!!!!
The best news of the Day !!!!
Now, we are becoming African Rasia, Rasia is the Energy source of Europe! Identifying the potential and utilizing on the sustainable base. We are planting trees … that enrich our water reservoirs and exporting the energy. That is really a great job for people and government of Ethiopia!
We are poisoned to grow and come out from poverty! we will do it very soon!
Can Eritrea also get some power? Guys we have to stop hatred and cooperate with Eritrea as well. Eritrea may not generate as much power as Ethiopia but it has very good ports Ethiopia can use in exchange for power.
Keep up Meles ,good Job.
The remarkable progress Ethiopia has achieved in the electrification project is yet another confirmation that this government is determined to make real changes in Ethiopia and make our country an economic power. Ethiopia shall prosper.
first electrify all ethiopian villages,and be able to meet the growing demand of industries and factories domestically.
What I don’t understand is there are many things that Ethiopia has done with eprdf/tplf Junta. However, there is nothing changed for general public except for those who calibrate the woyane repression tactic and those who worship them. Otherwise, by now we should at least be free from petitioning. The reason is Eprdf / tplf government is converting all Ethiopian money into gold and burring it in Mekele. It very sad the worst for Ethiopia and Ethiopians is yet to come.
Death for Eprd/Tplf , their followers and sponsors .
Peace, unity and democracy for Ethiopians, friends.
Don forget to plant trees all over the country to keep raining to fill the dams for sustainable export of power.
The enemies of GGIII are still opposing the dam with all their might, although the construction of the dam is almost half way through. They are doing everything possible, to stop the flow of money from the WB and the ADB, in financing this great project, which when accomplished will make Ethiopia the power house of Africa, and it will also ascertain her rights over her rivers.
Interconnecting Ethiopia with her airlines, electric power, roads and railways, with the neighbouring countries and assimilating the economies of the countries of the horn, will bring a win-win situation for all, in terms of economic development, peaceful coexistence and prosperity of the peoples of the region.
While most countries are trying to approach each other, there are others who are constructing an iron curtain around their people in this 21st century. Ethiopia was once a country which forgot the world, by whom she was forgotten, and similarly, those who try to isolate themselves today, will be left behind and they will be forgotten, despite their unrealistic beliefs to the contrary.
the tilttel should be Tigray is exporting electricty from Ethiopia to sudan. Other wise 79% percent of Ethiopia have not access to electricity. Tigray now is now showing a relativly good progress by the income generated from the rest of Ethiopia.
