Rwanda - Largest Solar Project In East Africa

Rwanda citizens now have the most Affordable Solar Home Systems in Africa, 30% more affordable than Kenya, 40-70% more affordable than any comparable product in Rwanda.  Rwanda is not unaccustomed to setting the record in the solar energy sector. In 2015, Rwanda set the record for the largest solar power project in East Africa, with the Rwamagana solar power plant in Aghozo-Shalom village. Although the record was later broken by Uganda’s 19 million USD Soroti Solar plant, Rwanda is now back on the lead, with the 38 million USD Ignite Rwanda solar project. In order to fuel its economic growth, Rwanda’s target is to substantially increase its energy supply from 190 MW in 2016 to 563MW in 2018.

That is progressive and selfless unlike South Africa. They are stuck in a coal hole with people wanting to push nuclear deals for financial gain.
