  • USAID will provide grants for the development of mini-grids in a Ugandan refugee settlement.
  • RTI is seeking developers to partner with to deploy the systems.

The Research Triangle Institute (RTI International), a U.S.-based nonprofit organization, has issued a request For applications (RFA) for development partners for the installation of mini-grids in Ntenungi village, in the Rwamwanja Refugee Settlement in western Uganda. The project is being developed by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

According to the RFA document, the mini-grids would provide safe and reliable electricity to refugees and host communities in off-grid areas. USAID will provide grants for the projects.

Although Uganda has very strong solar potential, the country has only about 82 MW of installed solar capacity.

Interested developers will have until February 8 to submit their applications.
