Power supply back in black

A combination of colder temperatures and increased water supply means two Kirirom

hydropower plants are back in action, and the power they can supply to Phnom Penh

is often outstripping demand.However Electricite du Cambodge (EDC) said it will continue

with plans to cut supply to large-scale industrial factories with their own generators,

to ensure it has enough electricity to supply the needs to residents. The planned

cutoff will occur between 8pm and 10pm, and EDC will contact affected factories to

ensure there is no negative impact to their business.
