Private Sector Participation in Micro Hydro Power Supply for Rural Development (PSP Hydro)


This project started in 2006. Objective: assist Rwandan private firms to develop micro hydro power plants (MHPP).
Currently, 3 privately developed and operated MHPP (combined capacity of about 1 MW) are in operation and function quite well.
4 more plants (1 MW) are in various stages of development and 7-8 more are in the planning stages (5.9 MW).
MARGE assists the project team with policy and strategy advise to further develop the micro-hydro sector and maximize private sector involvement.
