The information was given on Tuesday to ANGOP by the deputy administrator of Cacula, Custódio Severino Satiaca, who disclosed that the works are scheduled to end in 2018.

“It is in progress the assembling of a central to produce wind energy and the objective is to make it supply the product to the neighbouring municipalities of Quilengues, Caluquembe and Lubango”, he stressed.

He explained that this work happens in sequence of a study conducted by the Ministry of Energy and Waters, which indicates that Cacula is the country’s most windy municipality, which makes the project viable.   

“Currently, turbines are being placed in high positions for the transformation of wind into energy. With this investment we’ll have clean energy and we’ll be able to catapult the municipality to other levels”, said the deputy administrator of Cacula Municipality.

Cacula Municipality is located 93 kilometres to the north of the province’s chief town (Lubango). It has a population estimate at over 80,000 people.

Currently, Cacula gets power from the hydroelectric dam of Matala (Huila) and from generators provided by the municipal administration.
