Rural electrification: The Council of the Entente to fund the installation of solar kits in 14 villages

(Togo First) - In Togo, the council of the Entente will fund the installation of individual solar kits in 14 villages in Kara, the Savanes and the central region. The project, thanks to which electricity will be provided to about 1,000 households, falls within the framework of the Off-grid energy sources’ promotion initiated by the council.

In the framework of that promotion, it has already provided financial support to Togolese utility company Agence Togolaise de l’Electrification Rurale et des Energies Renouvelables (AT2ER), for the distribution of solar kits to 350 rural households.

“Our commitment to the development of the off-grid is being embodied here in Togo (…) and we are pursuing its development in Togo and in the other member countries of this organization,” said Patrice Kwamé, executive secretary of the Council of the Entente.

Let’s note that Togo is planning on providing electricity access to 2 million people with the installation of domestic solar kits, thus increasing the rural electrification rate (currently at 8%) to 50% in 2022 and 100% in 2030.
