Kenya to put $47m World Bank Loan in Off-grid Solar Energy in Far-flung Regions

Communities living in marginalized rural areas in Kenya will be linked to electricity through off-grid solutions, as part of the country’s drive to ensuring and enabling universal electricity access by 2022.

As of now the Government has connected about 75 per cent of the population to the national grid — through both grid and off-grid options. Kenya is now speculating on off-grid solutions to equip access to marginalised communities across 14 counties.
The country has received a $47 million loan from the World Bank to finance solar power projects and provide clean cooking stoves to about 1.3 million people.
The facility, under the Kenya-Off-Grid Solar Access Project (Kosap), is looking to establish viable off-grid solutions for areas that are too far from the national grid to be economically applicable when using power transmission and distribution facilities. Kosap is to receive a total of $150 billion from the World Bank.
