Power outages and the decision of under-grid households to connect to the grid

Abstract : A low power reliability is challenging the electrical grid's extension cost because it's lowering the number of connected households. The quality effect is at least 5% higher the the wealth effect, eventually up to 47%, and emerges as the main hurdle to households' connection. Adressing the challenge of electrical outages would accelerate 'per se' the annual number of new subscribers to the electricity distributor. The intermediate wealthy households would be the more prone to subscribe, provided that the availability of the power would be enhanced. The policy maker should be advised to put a peculiar effort on the technical features that sustain the reliability of power until its final destination.
