MeshPower’s mini-grid in rural Rwanda to open up new economic opportunities

The 4 Kw AC/DC mini-grid will provide clean energy access to 196 households and 15 businesses, nine of which are operated by women. This will not only improve the standard of living in the community, but also offer new economic opportunities and enhance the productivity of businesses in the village, which is currently not served by the national grid.

Through a Sida-funded programme, aiming to help companies deliver energy access in off-grid areas, Energy 4 Impact is supporting MeshPower to stimulate the demand for electricity in Gitaraga, so as to improve the economics of their mini-grid and help the viability of their business model.
