The Electricity Regulatory Authority (ERA) was created by the Electricity Act of 1999 as an agency of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development. The mandate of the ERA is "to provide for the generation, transmission, distribution, sale and use of electricity" in Uganda; to guide the liberalisation of the electricity industry; and to manage licensing, rates, safety and other matters concerning the electricity industry. The Electricity Regulatory Authority has offices in Kampala.

Organization and operations[edit]

The ERA works closely with many vendors to do its work. Organizations and committees within the purview of the ERA include the Rural Electrification Board, and Electricity Consumer Committees.
