$266M loan approved for Rwanda’s T&D network upgrades

Rwanda: The African Development Bank has approved a loan of $266 million to support Rwanda’s efforts in improving reliability of the country’s electricity supply.

The funding will support government efforts to expand access to electricity within the Scaling Up Electricity Access Programme (SEAP II), specifically, the construction of 795 km of medium voltage and 7,317 km of low voltage lines, bringing electricity to previously unserved communities, reports ESI-Africa.

Rwanda aims to achieve universal electricity access by 2024, using a combination of on-grid and off-grid solutions like solar home systems.
