The Private Sector Foundation Uganda (PSFU), in partnership with the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ)  through the Energising Development (EnDev) programme Uganda, invites applicants for a financing opportunity that aims to increase energy access through solar home systems to last-mile households in Uganda. The pilot will provide economic incentives to off-grid solar companies to reach rural areas with home solar systems.

  

How will successful applicants benefit?

Successful solar company applicants will receive financial incentives to offset part of their costs and risk including:

  • Customer remote finance: To subsidize customer acquisition and after-sales service costs based on customer location.
  • Asset finance: Toincrease shelf time for solar systems purchased on a cash basis and reduce the risk of default. 
  • Customer default finance: Topay off customer-specific partial compensation for losses made due to default payments.

NB: Successful candidates will be required to sign an incentive contract with PSFU.
