Description of activities This Nationally Appropriate Mitigation ActThis Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) targets mitigation in the rural electrification (off-grid) sector in Rwanda and focuses on the development and implementation of up to 100 solar PV mini-grids in rural villages, with operation under a Public Private Partnership (PPP) framework. The NAMA will include the application of power for Rural Productivities Zones (RPZ) for increasing the income generating potential of rural communities, through micro- and small businesses. The total installed capacity, for all villages, is expected to be between 9 – 10 MWp, providing 24 hr supply via solar PV generation and low voltage mini-grids. At the point of full implementation the NAMA actions are expected to provide access and service the expected electricity needs of over 100,000 persons in rural areas. After implementation, it is expected that the solar PV mini-grids will be operated as Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) under Operation, Maintenance, and Management (OMM) agreements with the community cooperatives or state executing agency.ty cooperatives or state executing agency.
