Solar Energy to Be Provided To Residents By Busia

Posted on : Tuesday , 13th March 2018

 Busia County has partnered with RVE.SOL Company to provide reliable and adequate solar-powered electricity to residents.

 
The two parties signed an agreement recently. The company will develop, operate and maintain solar mini-grids and offer high quality renewable and sustainable energy. They will also drill boreholes.
 
RVE.SOL chief executive Vivian Vendeirinho and county community liaison officer Caxton Juma signed the agreement.
 
The project is aimed at achieving a 100 percent rural electrification by 2030.
 
RVE.SOL will build, operate and manage a minimum of 15 community sites in Busia County during 2018 and expects to deploy another 40 in 2019, providing for 10,000 renewable electricity connections across the county.
 
At a high-level projection this company will finance, construct and operate Energy Regulatory Commission licensed green mini grid Solar PV/ Battery hybrid system sites with diesel generator backup serving 2,800 grid compliant connections, including 300 small businesses and posho mills.
 
Several sites will include water pumping and purification technology with RVE.SOL intending to establish a bottled water brand “Made in Busia” for export to the broader commercial retail market.
 
The communities in question will assume local ownership of non-technical day to day operations of the project through the local community-based organization and ensure that the equipment is maintained securely.
 
RVE.SOL is a rural electrification project developer and operator, developing rural energy projects in Tanzania, Kenya, and Mozambique.
