This follows the May 26,  2021 approval for $84.2 million from the resources of the African Development Fund (ADF), the concessional window of the bank group, for the same project.

According to the bank, financing for the Transmission System Reinforcement and Last Mile Connectivity project comprises $140 million from the African Development Bank sovereign window and a $40 million co-financing from the Africa Growing Together Fund (AGTF), as well as resources from the African Development Fund (ADF).

The project, the statement, noted,  will entail the construction of over 1,000 km of medium voltage and 3,300 km of low voltage lines to boost last mile access. It will also build 137km of high voltage line and six substations required to strengthen the grid.

“Other features of the project include the installation or upgrading of more than 1,200 distribution transformers and related infrastructure.

“The project will connect 77,470 households to the electricity network for the first time. It will also connect 75 schools, eight health centres and 65 administration centres, while enabling the evacuation of 125MW of clean energy from hydropower plants. It will create 455 permanent jobs and 760 part-time jobs, with 30 per cent of these going to women.

“The rationale for the bank’s intervention is to support the country’s pursuit of 100 per cent access to electricity by 2024. The project will contribute to enhancing the quality of life by facilitating improved education and health provision as well as promoting private sector growth, hence contributing to Rwanda’s social and economic transformation agenda which aims to transition Rwanda from a developing country to a middle-income country by 2035.

“The bank-financed grid access component of the project will target households in southern Rwanda, where connection rates are below 34 per cent. The main cities targeted are Gisagara, Huye, Nyamagabe, Nyanza, Nyaruguru, and Ruhango.  The project will also strengthen the network in Nyarugege city, Nyamata, Kigali Hub, and other zones across the country where rising commercial activity has increased electricity demand” the bank, said.
