THE ELECTRIFICATION OF 250 VILLAGES THROUGH SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS
Project manager: Ministry of Energy
Estimated cost (USD): USD 38,214 million
Estimated cost (FCFA): FCFA 19,107 billion
Today, the energy sector is at the heart of socio-economic concerns and the fight against climate change. In spite of its pivotal role, this sector remains underdeveloped in Niger, where rural areas are the most marginalized with a coverage rate of approximately 1% versus 50% for urban centres. This project aims to electrify 250 villages across Niger through the installation of micro-plants equipped with photovoltaic solar kits to promote the economic and social development of rural centres.
