Power Africa: Advancing Energy Access in Refugee Settlements

Speeches Shim

USAID Power Africa’s De-Risking Pay-As-You-Go Solar Home Systems in the Uganda Refugee Settlement project is aimed to accelerate off-grid investment and energy access by incentivizing private sector Pay-As-You-Go (PAYGO) Solar Home System (SHS) companies to enter Kiryandongo and Rwamwanja refugee settlements and host communities.

From June 2019 to May 2020, three experienced companies established new operations in and around the settlements, adapted business models to local context, and sold over 4,000 units. This document captures the key lessons learned while entering the refugee market.
