The solar PV project in Rwanda involves the installation of 500,000 off-grid solar PV home systems across the country, providing clean electricity for lighting, and other basic needs including the charging of electronic devices. The project is a major part of the Rwandan Government’s rural electrification strategy. It employs a flexible mobile payment platform, making it one of the most affordable payment schemes in Africa. Nearly 2.5 million people in rural communities are expected to benefit from improved electricity access, and more than 2,000 local jobs will be created.
