Togo Sees Significant Increase in Electricity Access over Past Three Years

Togo’s electricity access rate rose from 50% in 2020 to 68% in 2023. According to the Presidency, the surge is due to several inclusive initiatives, including the CIZO and Tinga Fund projects. Over 600,000 households now have light because of these projects.

Another project that fostered the increase is the installation of 50,000 autonomous and intelligent solar streetlights launched in April 2023. It covered 4,599 localities. There is also the Blitta solar power plant. Initially, the plant had a capacity of 50 MWp but it is being expanded.

Togo aims to achieve 70% electricity coverage this year and 100% by 2030.
