Togo: Kya Energy Group lands $450,000 deal to electrify 20 health centers in rural areas

(Togo First) - Over the next 12 months, 20 rural health centers will be provided solar-powered generators by Kya Energy Group. This was disclosed by Yao Azoumah, CEO of the Lomé-based international group which specializes in clean energies (with a focus on solar). 

As part of the project for which the firm landed a subsidy of $450,000, each of the health centers concerned will also be equipped with automatic soap dispensers and a fridge, among others. 

Kya Energy secured the subsidy following a call for projects launched by Power Africa via USAID. Selected firms - all specialized in solar energy - will share $2.6 million (more than CFA1.4 billion) to supply off-grid power to 300 health centers across the sub-Saharan Africa region. This will enable the benefiting infrastructures to have continuous access to power and thus ensure they do not experience any disruption while providing healthcare. 

Besides Kya Energy Group, other companies selected for the project are from Nigeria, Zambia, Madagascar, Rwanda, Lesotho, Mozambique, and Malawi.
