The Project aims to develop 22 community-scale solar plus battery storage micro-grids in southern Haiti in communities where currently no grid power exists. The Project will provide affordable and reliable 24/7 access to modern energy services in communities previously identified through extensive market scoping in this region of the country. This will be accompanied by technical assistance to build capacity for microgrid deployment and operation. The Project incorporates a battery storage solution, thus offering 24-hour service and a 100 per cent renewable energy- based viable economic alternative to diesel generators.
