According to Myanmar Times, Myanmar produced 5901 megawatts of electricity during the past six-month period ending in March 2019 and it was estimated to produce 6054 megawatts by the end of September 2019. However, only 42% of the population has access to electricity so the country has a lot of challenges to face before achieving universal electrification.
