According to the information from The Ethiopian Electric Power Corporation (EEPC), Gilgel Gibe II hydroelectric power station resumed service after it suspended operation for 11 months following appropriate maintenance. “The resumption of the power station will alleviate shortage of power supply in the country” , said Public Relations Head with the corporation, Misikir Negash on Monday.
