Energy Minister Dr Bachir Ismael Ouedraogo proceeded on February 25th , 2019 in Ouagadougou, the launch of the Solar Back-up Project. Supported by the National Agency for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ANEREE), the project aims to encourage the development of solar energy in Burkina.
The Solar Back-up Project kits, intended primarily for individuals and SMEs, are in the form of hybrid energy cabinets with an integrated storage system, mobile ready-to-use and easy to install. The project provides users with various kits according to needs and at prices ranging from 160 thousand CFA francs to 3 million CFA francs.
