Access to Sustainable Energy Project

Project Description
This project finance to increase household access to solar powered electricity within select electric cooperative service areas. The project components include rural electrification via solar home systems (SHS) of an estimated 40,500 households within the coverage areas of the participating ECs. Rural Network Solar (RNS) aims to increase renewable energy production via small, grid connected solar power plants. It is expected that 14 MW of new renewable energy generation capacity will be brought on-line as a result of the project interventions. A capital subsidy buy-down based on a least-cost, competitive approach is expected to level the playing field for grid connected solar vis-à-vis higher polluting alternatives.
