In the following phases, 188 other localities will be equipped with the mini-grids. In total, the country intends to electrify at least 317 of its localities using solar mini-grids. All of these infrastructures are planned to have a combined capacity of 11,000 kW serving approximately 45,000 electricity consumers through a 480 kilometers electrical distribution line network.

A public-private partnership project

Subsidized by the West African Development Bank (BOAD), the entire solar mini-grid electrification project in Togo will be carried out within the public-private partnership (PPP) framework.

In mid-October last year but one, AT2ER launched a pre-qualification notice for the development, co-financing, construction, operation, and maintenance of mini-solar grids, as well as distribution networks, the distribution and marketing of electricity to customers, and the transfer at the end of the license.

The solar mini-grid electrification project supports the Cizo project, which was launched in December 2017 with an aim to provide 300,000 households with solar home installations within a period of 5 years.

Together, the two initiatives will enable the West African Country to increase its electrification rate from the current 8% to 50%. Togo has also set itself the ambition of increasing its installed capacity of renewable energy, connected to the electricity grid from 3 MW in 2020 to 200 MW by 2030.
