    The controversial Bujagali hydropower station in Uganda has been commissioned and is now on the grid. It loads an additional 250 MW on the national grid effectively doubling the power generation capacity in the country.
    This development is a sigh of relief for Ugandans in several ways: it eliminates expensive thermal power; It releases some US$9.5 million in electricity subsidies to the exchequer; it eliminates load shedding and brightens prospects for economic growth.
