Ministry of Light & Water

This ministry is part of Vekllei

The Ministry of Light & Water is responsible for water and electricity supply in Vekllei. While the ministry primarily directs production and facilitates research, it also controls the vast majority of energy and water production in Vekllei through its statutory corporations.

Increasingly, ministry investment has indicated an interest in energy and water conservation, especially since the majority of Vekllei islands have limited water sources and desalination remains expensive. Common responsibilities of the ministry include:

  • Maintenance and operation of utilities that provide Vekllei people with electricity and water.
  • Facilitation of water and energy grid independence.
  • Production and conservation of energy and water.
  • Investment and research into emerging physical sciences.
  • Advising energy and water policy to republican and commonwealth parliaments.
  • Nuclear energy security.

The Ministry of Light & Water is the third-largest ministry by persons employed, and its subordinate bureaux and corporations are responsible for a number of iconic pieces of Vekllei infrastructure, including the Expo ‘74 Experimental Reactor and the Ou Hydroburo Complex. It is lead by the State Secretary of Light & Water, who is a member of the Cabinet. It is represented in the Commonwealth Council by the First Minister of Light & Water.

The ministry is organised around electricity and water production respectively, but also has statutory bodies for emergencies, security and nuclear science research. The ministry was a pioneer in the construction the first and second commercial fusion power plants in Oslola and Kairi, which were among the first in the world to provide fusion-generated electricity to households.
