FRES Uganda installs 3700 SHS systems supported by EU

In the first quarter of 2021, FRES Uganda finalized the installation of in total 3700 new solar home systems for households and small businesses in Uganda.

The final set of 550 systems were scheduled to be installed in 2020. After a delay during the country-wide covid-19 lockdown the installations were picked up again in November 2020 and finalized in the first quarter of 2021.

The project was financed through the European Commission’s ACE-EU Partnership, as part of a larger contract between FRES and the European Union to realize 11.000 new connections to solar energy in rural areas of Mali, Uganda and Guinea-Bissau.
