The Rwandan energy market is small but developing rapidly. The country aims for 100% electricity access and another 200 MW procured by 2030. Scatec Solar built the first large scale solar power plant in the country in 2014 with a 8.5 MW solar plant.
Situated in the Rubona District, the solar plant provides energy to the national grid under a 20 year PPA. The Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village (ASYV) is the only utility scale solar plant in the country, and was the first large-scale solar plant to be constructed in Eastern Africa. Leasing the land from the local school, benefits the community extensively alongside providing stable, consistent power to the grid.
