The government of Ethiopia has invested 162 million dollars to address Addis Abeba’s unreliable power supply. Ethiopia Electric Utility, is taking measures to meet the ever growing electricity demand of 3.6 million or so city residents. Despite resolutions made by the government, the capital is experiencing increased blackouts, and the citizens are expressing their grievances about the recurrent power outages, 

Yared Dinku, 31, provides photocopying, typing, printing and internet services at his stationery shop on Mauritius Street near Gofa Mazoria. His business is entirely dependent on electricity. “I don’t have any backup power,” Yared says, “the electric supply is my only option.”Residents and small business owners like him are exasperated by the electric outages and blackouts that have become all too familiar.
