Project Description

The objective of the proposed project is to expand access to electricity services in rural areas. The proposed project will support the electrification of around 300 new localities in selected rural areas and the connection of 115,000 households, micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) and community infrastructures (school, health centers, etc.) to modern and reliable electricity services. Consistent with the government strategy to prioritize socially equitable energy solutions at least cost, the project aims to maximize the number of households provided with electricity services while fostering local economic industrial development as well as attracting private investment.
