Togo has an off-grid market of 500,000 households according to the ROGEP

(Togo First) - Using PV solar panels, Togo could power 500,000 households. This was disclosed by Nouhou Amadou Seini, coordinator of the third zone of the Regional Off-grid Electrification Project (ROGEP).

This was at a meeting that is being held today in Lomé to restitute and validate a study assessing the off-grid PV solar market in Togo.

According to Nouhou Amadou, the 500,000 households are divided into three sub-categories: homes, public services (schools, health centres, etc.) and supply systems (water supply, mills, etc.).

The ROGEP, let's recall, is a project developed in 19 countries, including ECOWAS member States and four others namely, Mauritania, Chad, Cameroon and the Central African Republic. It is financed by the World Bank and aims at creating a regional market that will resolve the rural electrification issue, by allowing the private sector to produce small or large scale independent PV solar systems.

Another similar project is the CIZO which supplies power to more than 23,000 households, since Jule this year. By 2022, the latter aims to distribute 300,000 individual solar kits to two million Togolese.
