In this article, the planning of electricity supply infrastructure is problematised from the ubuntu point of view. Among other things, I examine the impact of nuclear energy on planning electricity supply infrastructure in order to meet the administrative obligation to facilitate universal access to affordable, reliable and clean, modern electricity to the populace. In addition, flowing from the synergies between the hypothesis of cheap and clean electricity from nuclear capacity and collective benefits from available resources while protecting the environment, this article explores the right to access to electricity, and the role of the Department of Energy in providing electricity to the populace by planning electricity supply infrastructure that is in harmony with communities and environments, guided by the values of ubuntu.
