Muscat Electricity Distribution Company (MEDC)

MEDC is the only entity responsible for distribution of electricity in the Governorate of Muscat. �It is 99.99% owned by the Electricity Holding Company (EHC) and the remaining 0.01% by Ministry of Finance. �The company was formed on 1st of May 2005 as a result of the Royal Decree 78/2004, promulgating the law for the regulation and privatization of the electricity and related water sector activities in the Sultanate of Oman. The Decree aims to achieve a comprehensive restructuring of the electricity sector by means of gradual privatization, hence the operational responsibilities were split and passed on from Ministry of Housing, Electricity & Water (MHEW) down to MEDC and nine other companies that are now involved in various related activities. �Having these responsibilities means that MEDC is entitled to own, maintain and develop the distribution networks in the Governorate of Muscat. MEDC�s main function is to build and maintain the necessary infrastructure for the distribution of electricity in the governorate of Muscat. � The area of responsibility includes private consumers, commercial consumers and government Sector. �This variety in customers gives MEDC a competitive advantage in the field and keeps the door for improvements always open.
