The Electricity Connection Policy, also known as the free connections program is a project which is funded and managed by the Government of Uganda through the Rural Electrification Agency (REA) to cover the cost of the last mile connection for customers requiring no-pole or one-pole service. Customers, therefore, receive a 100% subsidy (free connection) for no pole or one-pole connections and are only required to pay UGX. 20,000 for inspection of customer premises. The inspection is required to confirm that the premises to be electrified have undergone appropriate electrical wiring by a certified technician and are ready for connection to the electricity grid.
