From 16th to 20th May 2022, President EEAU Elvis Ssekate traversed the areas of West Nile, Acholi, Lango and Teso (in Uganda) to create awareness of #EnergyEfficiency. In collaboration with Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH PREEEP (Uganda) under the ‘Clean Energy For A Better Life’ campaign, The team held radio talkshows on 90.9 FM Radio Pacis, 88.7 FM Arua One, 95.7 FM Radio Rupiny, 102 Mega FM, 97.7 Unity FM, 102.4 Dokolo FM & 88.4 FM Voice of Teso.

The team made courtesy visit to electricity generation facilities in Arua (300KW Solar at Radio Pacis + 8.2 MW Thermal by Electromaxx + 3.5 MW Hydro by WENERECO) and Soroti (10 MW Solar by Access Solar).
On the energy consumer end, the team visited Soroti Fruits Limited (the manufacturers of TEJU – the indigenous orange and mango juice products) to appreciate the processes and develop an understanding of their energy needs, challenges and opportunities for energy efficiency.

The campaign message has been simple but consistent. In the current times of increasing energy demand and escalating energy and commodity prices, there has never been a better time to consider using the energy efficiently for homes, businesses, buildings, industries and transportation.

Remember, the cheapest energy is the energy you have not used!
