Power Africa commits Shs 2bn to Uganda’s solar energy sector

The Observer

Power Africa has offered $500,000 (about Shs 1.9 billion) to support the expansion of off-grid solar electricity solutions in the country.

The money will be channeled through Uganda Solar Energy Association (USEA), which consists of more than 95 private companies providing solar energy solutions to consumers especially in rural areas.

The government wants off-grid consumers to access clean modern energy services in a bid to improve social services, economic growth and welfare to achieve its ambitious 2030 middle income status.
