Palestinian Authority reaches agreement with Egypt on Gaza electricity

Aug 30, 2007 - BBC Monitoring

The Gaza power authority has announced that an agreement was reached with Egypt to supply Gaza districts with 150 MW of power for a period of five years that could reach 800 MW in future.

Kan'an Ubayd, chairman of the authority, said that the project was already under way, hoping that it would be complete in 15 months from now. The project would mean Gaza would do away with Israeli power supply, he said, noting that the Israelis had agreed to supply Gaza with 50 Megawatt to meet the existing power shortage. The chairman said that the Israeli threat to cut power supply to the Gaza Strip would entail an "unprecedented human catastrophe".
