The Rural Electrification Authority is apparently set develop a bio-power generating plant in Lufwanyama. The bio- power will be generated using the by-products from the saw mills in the area. This appears to be the first bio-fuel project that is being directly championed by the REA. Previous announced projects have been private. It remains to be see whether this is merely an attempt to appease the locals after the stoppage of the Rural Electrification Programme. Something that has apparently angered local chiefs.
