According to statistics, the number of households accessing electricity has increased from 10% in 2010 to 74% as of August 2022. Kicukiro and Nyaruguru Districts have currently the highest rate with 99% while the lowest rate is above 50%. The total number of households connected across the country is over two million today.
The Government of Rwanda has taken a policy decision to diversify the sources of electricity by adding to traditional dominant grid connections some mini-grid and off-grid connections. Subsequently, Households located far away from the planned national grid coverage are being 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.
Among the 74% households accessing electricity, 50.7% are connected to the national grid while 23.2% are accessing through off-grid solutions, mainly solar energy and mini-grids.
The current access targets stipulate a 100% access to electricity by the year 2024.
