Shared Solar Tanzania ESCO

Sustainable Economy Solutions (SES) in partnership with RemoteSolutions Company Limited, is creating SharedSolar Energy Service Company to provide sustainable services through low-cost, scalable and networked micro-grid solutions.

The development objectives of the project are to increase access to electricity to the rural households of Karagwe district from zero in the project baseline to 1,500 by end of the projects; reduce the cost of living and increase the reliability of electricity service through reduced lighting costs by over 40%; and reduce emissions of carbon dioxide by at least 156tCO2/Year.

SharedSolar ESCO will implement a business model based on 2 tiers of micro grid technology for off-grid markets and the commercialization of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) to third party project developers. At the end of the 2-year project we will have constructed 1000 household connections through micro grids and set-up 20 energy efficient productive activities. At the end of the project we also expect to have 500 connections under management through AMI (currently at zero).
