Electricity access

As of June 2022, the cumulative connectivity rate is 73% of Rwandan households including 51% connected to the national grid and 22% accessing through off-grid systems (mainly solar).

During the elaboration of the EDPRS II, the Government of Rwanda took a clear policy decision to diversify the sources of electricity from traditional dominant grid to include even off-grid connections. Subsequently, Households far away from the planned national grid coverage have been encouraged to use alternatively cheaper connections such as Mini-grids and Solar Photovoltaics (PVs) to reduce the cost of access to electricity whilst relieving constraints on historical government subsidies.

The current access targets stipulate that 100% households will have access to electricity by the year 2024. Among these households, 69.1% will be connected to the grid while 30.9% will be using off-grid solutions.
