Power Africa, a US government-led partnership, is requesting information concerning "Distributed Electricity Services and Modern Cooking Fuel Delivery" for the Power Africa Off-grid Project.

Power Africa Off-grid Project (PAOP) is a four-year contract between the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and RTI International. PAOP focuses on accelerating off-grid energy access through solar household systems (SHS) and micro-grids, with the goal of facilitating 6 million new electricity connections by 2022. Power Africa seeks to support accelerated provision of full energy access to off grid communities in SSA by promoting coordinated delivery of distributed electricity services and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) cooking solutions through a market-based approach.

The project seeks to collect written information about the capabilities of organizations interested in piloting and/or expanding business models to deliver distributed solar electricity services alongside LPG cooking solutions. We are looking to collect information from organizations that already have deployed solutions in either off-grid electricity or LPG (or both). The organization must have activities in one of these two sectors. The information will be used to help make a planning decision and the requested information will not be released publicly.

The deadline for submission of response is June 30, 2019 at 5:00pm (Pretoria Time), late submissions will not be accepted.
