Photovoltaic Project for Rural Electrification



The project aimed at overcoming the financial, social, and institutional barriers that hinder the widespread dissemination of this technology. The strategy was to establish viable financial and institutional mechanisms for offering solar photovoltaic systems on a commercial basis to households, businesses, and communities. In the first two years of implementation, the project has led to the installation, by solar companies, of 576 solar home systems and 42 institutional systems. Some of the institutional systems have been installed in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and local government agencies to provide lighting for clinics and vaccine refrigeration facilities.
