The project seeks to support the energy sector in Burkina Faso through the electrification of rural areas utilising renewable energy sources. The 3.6 megawatts hybrid (solar and diesel) project aims to meet the requirements of 4,200 houses, 21 healthcare centers, 86 schools and 16 water supply systems across 42 rural districts in the country. It will reduce nearly 2,500 tons of CO2 emission in a year, besides creating several job opportunities across construction, operations and maintenance works.
