Precise Consult to Manufacture 250,000 Solar Home Systems Locally in Ethiopia

By Jean Marie Takouleu

Precise Consult is launching a programme to manufacture and distribute 250,000 solar home systems in Ethiopia. This initiative, supported by the authorities, will also allow the distribution of kits for the productive use of solar energy, particularly in the agricultural sector.

A solar energy access programme is being launched in Ethiopia. It is an initiative of Precise Consult, a consulting firm based in the capital Addis Ababa. The programme will first be rolled out in the Amhara and Oromia regions before expanding to other parts of the country. The programme aims to provide access to electricity. To achieve this, Precise Consult plans to manufacture 250,000 solar home systems locally for rural populations.
