Mini-grid project for first time energy access

The mini-grid project will further impact 30,000 Beninese, giving them access to electricity for the first time and deepening energy access in the country within the next 10 years.

Per capita consumption of electricity in Benin is among the wo rld’s lowest because of limited access to and availability of electricity for the country’s 11 .8 million people, said the Millennium Challenge Corporation.

“Rapidly growing demand coupled with inadequate maintenance and insufficient investment have stressed Benin’s national grid, resulting in poor service that impacts households, hurts businesses, and hinders public services.”
