- REUCSIn pursuit of its mandate, REA has embarked on community awareness raising campaigns to mobilize and sensitize rural communities across the country to form Rural Electricity Users Cooperative Society (REUCS). Rural communities are expected to own operate and maintain their electricity networks in collaboration with private companies providing the know-how required to operate such systems effectively and efficiently.
An appreciable progress has been recorded since the introduction of these initiatives in the 36 States of the Federation and FCT, Abuja. Several communities spread across the six geo-political zones of the country have been sensitized and registered with certificates as Cooperative Societies.
The number of communities that have been sensitized and keyed into the REUCS initiative from 2009 – May 2017, are 497. while 99 communities are registered with REUCS certificates.
The total certificates of communities registered into REUCS with the CHQ are 99
