Abstract

Firms that report insufficient electricity from the public grid are likely to experience higher constraints on access to finance. The lack of availability of electricity will translate to greater production delays and lower expected profits. Consequently, it will have an adverse impact on the constraints on access to finance. In this paper, I study the impact of constraints on getting electricity as well as electricity usage costs on the constraints on access to finance. I determine whether firms within countries with a deficit level of electricity supply exhibit different patterns in the aforementioned relationship than firms within countries with a surplus level of electricity supply.
