PUDC to set up multipurpose solar platforms in new rural areas

(Togo First) - The Community Development Emergency Scheme (PUDC) will purchase and set up 40 new multipurpose solar platforms in various rural communities across the country, a source obtained by Togo First stated.

In details, the platforms will provide power to the benefiting communities, enabling them to earn revenues, mostly with agriculture-related activities. For example, the power supplied via the solar platforms will facilitate shea processing, rice or corn husking, welding, reloading batteries, etc.

The ministry of grassroots development has launched an international tender subdivided into five lots for the project. Firms selected through the process will supply and set up the solar multipurpose platforms.

The project, let’s note, is financially backed by the government, in line with the national programme for multipurpose solar platforms development (PN-PTM).
