Manufacturing and sales of solar home systems in Rwanda

The project’s objective is to establish the first local manufacturing plant of affordable solar home systems in Rwanda. The project aims to lower the cost price of solar home systems by introducing manufacturing and assembly of solar panels locally. With the right financial incentive for the customer it hopes to boost the sales of solar kits up to the level of commercial viability. Rural households will achieve cost savings by spending less on lighting and phone charging, and will also see significant economic, health, education, and social benefits.
