(Ecofin Agency) - Togolese project for rural electrification via solar power CI-ZO reached first beneficiaries, last weekend in Savanna region. It was launched on December 2, 2017, in Ogou by the head of State, Faure Gnassingbé.   

Thus, 12,000 households have access to renewable electricity at lower cost in Mango town. This initiative which is the flagship project of the president’s social mandate, will reach 70,000 households in Savanna region and 300,000 across the country (about 2 million Togolese). Faure Gnassingbé wants to increase rural area’s electrification rate from 7% to 40% by 2022.

The company B.Boxx is in charge of the project’s execution, under the supervision of the Togolese agency for rural electricity and renewable energy.

With this new method, every household will get an individual solar kit paid in installments via mobile money. 

With an overall cost of $8.7 billion, CI-ZO project is also intended to materialize public-private partnerships promoted by authorities and generate jobs for young people. In regards to the latter, a thousand of jobs will be created within 5 years through this project.
