SAN DIEGO, Oct. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via InvestorWire -- Astra Energy Inc. (OTC Pink Sheets: ASRE) (“Astra” or the “Company”), a renewable and waste-to-energy project developer and technology acquisition company, announces talks with the Ugandan government to invest in the energy sector in that country.

A letter from the government of Uganda written to Astra Energy indicates that the government is keen to partner with Astra Energy to develop the first-ever natural gas-fired combined cycle power plant in Uganda to enhance the country’s energy mix, as well as guarantee an uninterrupted and low-cost power supply within that country. Uganda has initiated ambitious economic growth goals that require power.

The government has requested that Astra commission a feasibility study to enable the two parties to enter into negotiations for a power purchase agreement (PPA). Once a PPA is signed, Astra will develop the power plant and operate it. This is in alignment with Astra Energy’s mission to develop first-in-class clean and renewable energy projects in markets where demand is high, supply is limited and local communities can benefit.
