Tanzania Compact - Kigoma Solar
Summary: MCC's $694.5 million Tanzania Compact (2008-2013) funded the $199.5 million Energy Sector Project, which included the $11 million Kigoma Solar Activity to provide photovoltaic systems to address energy needs where energy infrastructure and access to grid electricity was limited. The compact originally did not include the Kigoma Solar Activity; the activity was developed to replace the Malagarasi Hydropower and Kigoma Distribution Activity, which was canceled due to environmental risks. The Kigoma Solar Activity aimed to increase the use of solar-powered electricity, thereby reducing non-solar electricity consumption, which includes the use of kerosene and diesel.
