With the implementation of this electric infrastructure, built with resources from the State Budget (OGE), restrictions on the supply of energy to areas considered critical, such as Pedreira, Recolixo, Landfill and surrounding areas, which previously depended on the substation of Caop, in Viana.

"This substation came to end the restrictions that were felt in Mulenvos, Recolixo and surroundings. For previously the power supply came from Caop, in Viana, and ended up to Cacuaco and it was not possible to distribute it, so there were many restrictions on distribution," said Luanda electrification project director Omar João when speaking to journalists who made a verification visit to the project.

With this substation, the National Electricity Distribution Company (ENDE) will electrify neighborhoods that have never benefited from public net power, but which depended on private PTs for energy.

Consumers in the areas covered by the new substation no longer depend on private PTs, which charged for each contract, values ranging from 55,000 to 80,000 kwanzas and a monthly consumption of more than 3.500 kwanzas, even in situations in which had benefited from electricity during the month.
