On behalf of the Management team and all staff of Uganda Electricity Distribution Company Limited (UEDCL), I welcome you to our official website.

UEDCL is steadily progressing in her mandate which among other obligations includes administering the Lease and Assignment Agreement (LAA), managing the company’s leased assets, supervising the completion of the Rural Electrification Schemes that were under construction before the transfer of business to Umeme, and managing the pole plant.

Under authority vested by the concession, UEDCL conscientiously executes its mandate of monitoring the level of Investments by Umeme to improve the electricity distribution infrastructure; and collecting rent to service debt as provided for in the Lease and Assignment Agreement.

On the business side, UEDCL is successfully operating the Pole treatment operations at the Lugogo-based Pole Plant in Kampala over and above the profit thresholds. All efforts are made to ensure that the plant fully performs its duty in the Energy sector, by ensuring sufficient supply of quality treated wood poles to support the distribution and transmission electricity networks within the country.                                                    .  
The Pole plant has not only focused on profitability, but also its Safety, Health and Environmental compliance. The plant took a step further in its effort to establish a safe working environment for staff and compliance with regulations on occupational health and safety and environmental regulations.

Furthermore, Uganda Electricity Distribution Company Limited operates and maintains the electricity off-grid stations in Moyo, Adjumani and Moroto until their divestiture, while simultaneously maintaining a state of readiness to take over the distribution business in an event of an early termination of the concession.

Uganda Electricity Distribution Company Limited (UEDCL) has continued to deliver to our obligation of developing and maintaining the electricity distribution assets and other related activities, under the company’s mission to administer the Lease and Assignment Agreement, for compliance and investment requirements, and to grow other electricity distribution assets by 10% per annum.

I commend the support and guidance of the Board of Directors, and the dedication of management and staff who remain serving diligently towards attaining our company’s vision of a guaranteed robust electricity distribution network.

Lastly I extend a vote of thanks on behalf of management to all our key stakeholders for their contribution to our UEDCL’s businesses.

Joseph Katera
Managing Director
