Togo: A total of 317 communities will have access to light using solar mini-grids

(Togo First) - In Togo, 317 rural communities will be provided electricity using solar mini-grids.

This is a project financed by the BOAD and it entails the development, co-financing, construction, and maintenance of the mini-grids and distribution networks. It also includes the distribution and sale of power to customers and the transfer of the grids after the related license expires.

Overall, the project should cover 45,000 people, generate 11,000 kW and lay 480 km of distribution lines.

To undertake the project, the Togolese Agency for Rural Electrification and Renewable Energies, AT2ER has issued a pre-qualification notice to select the mini-grids developers. The call to the manifestation of interest will end on November 28, 2019.

This project is subdivided into five parts. The first will cover 85 communities, the second 62 communities, the third 78 communities, and the last two 46 communities respectively.

Through this project, Togo will take another step towards its goal to achieve universal electrification by 2030. Let's recall that last July, the CIZO project had already helped provide power to more than 23,000 households with solar kits.
