Decentralized Electricity for Universal Access in Bolivia

Overview

While 90 percent of Bolivia’s urban homes are electrified, rural access to electricity remains below one-third. The Decentralized Electricity for Universal Access project aimed to increase rural access to electricity, as well as information and communications technologies via decentralized public-private partnerships that incorporate output-based aid subsidies. The project provided subsidies to private providers for the sale, installation and after-sale service and market development activities for solar home systems in rural households, micro-enterprises, schools and clinics.
