Kigoma PV project initiative, Tanzania

Date: 2010/11
Client: Millennium Challenge Account – Tanzania
Location: Tanzania
Outcome: The project focuses on developing a sustainable Solar PV delivery solution for the Kigoma Region, including solar home systems (household/businesses), Pico PV lighting systems (household), institutional (schools and clinics), small enterprises etc. The project requires us to understand current energy use demands and to facilitate – through marketing and finance – a transition from non-renewable to renewable (PV) energy solutions. The objectives are two-fold: determine the viability in a pre-selected target area, and design commercially-oriented, simple, implementable solar PV programs for Households (Solar Home Systems), Public Institutions (Schools, Clinics) and Productive Use Applications (Businesses, Small Industries etc.)
