No longer a redirect[edit]

I changed this from a redirect to Tennessee Valley Authority because rural electrification has to do with more than just that agency (wasn't Stalin really into this kinda thing?) I'll try to expand in the future. Paul 05:51, 12 September 2005 (UTC)

Date this was passed?[edit]

Anyone know the month/date this act was passed?

You'll need to see the article on the specific act you are referring to.

Re Soviet electrification programs[edit]

As per the first message, the Soviet electrification of rural areas (especially the Republics like Kazakhstan and Uzhbekistan) is an important feature of these national initiatives - the article makes no mention of the USSR history re, so I'm going to make a section in my sandbox to start a few bits with.

Statistics needed[edit]

What percentage of the world's population (or by country) have access to grid electricity? How has that changed over time? -- Beland (talk) 20:02, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

India Section[edit]

The whole section reads like an opinion piece, and no references are citied save for the figure of 400 million (which again is misleading, the IEA report states: 'access to the energy needed for lighting, mechanical power, transport and telecommunications.')

'The problem'; 'Many people' 'very high tariffs are unaffordable, resisted by all but the wealthiest users.'; 'The result'; 'is preferable'; 'there is doubt'... are not very objective phrases. Tomtriglone (talk) 07:28, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
