ALER's Member RP Global launches mini-grid program in Africa

Mini-grids joint-venture with RPGlobal, ALER’s Member and JUMEME will provide free electricity to healthcare centers in Tanzania.

 

JUMEME, a mini-grid operator in Tanzania co-funded by the European Commission, has launched a “COVID-19 Relief Program” to support the Tanzanian government and local populations in their effort to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. With this program, JUMEME will use its local solar-hybrid mini-grids to provide energy to 10 healthcare centers.

 

As free and reliable electricity supply will help keep operations run smoothly, it will also free up much needed financial resources to better prepare the local healthcare facilities to fight COVID-19.

 

In addition to its 12 solar-hybrid mini-grids already in operation in the Lake Victoria area, JUMEME is also finalizing the implementation of 11 mini-grids on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, in the Northwest of Tanzania, which will connect 10 more health centers once operating. JUMEME intends to extend its relief program to this area to support their local healthcare centers as soon as the new project is completed.
