World Bank & Green Climate Fund offer US$271m to off-grid solar in Sahel and Mali PV mini-grids

So far, only 3% of households in West Africa and the Sahel are served by stand-alone solar home systems, and 208 million people in the sub-region do not have access to electricity. According to PV-Tech news, The financing for the Regional Off-Grid Electrification Project (ROGEP) focuses on 19 countries including Benin, Burkina Faso, Cabo Verde, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Cote d’Ivoire, The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Togo. ROGEP targets households, businesses, and public institutions to install stand-alone solar systems and hopes to reach 1.7 million people. The World Bank has approved US$224.7 million in financing to help expand off-grid energy access programmes using solar in West Africa and the Sahel regions. The Green Climate Fund is also to provide €46.2 million in funding for solar-based mini-grids for rural electrification in Mali where 80% of the population in the rural areas do not have access to electricity, with most power coming from diesel generators. --------------------***-------------------- Source:https://tinyurl.com/yy28k7bx) Photo:www.pv-tech.org ……………………………………. ‘All rights to go to the author of the news & image as mentioned above’ -------------------------------------------
