New Installations in Rwanda - Africa
Chromagen’s Rwanda distributor – Balton Rwanda, successfully installed a pilot of residential systems in Kigali, Rwanda. Following the pilot great success, Balton Rwanda was awarded additional 6000 systems to be installed in the next three years.
The SolaRwanda program is led by EWSA - Rwanda Electricity Company, and will include a grand total of 12,000 systems which will be financed by the World Bank. The program provides a subsidy of 300$ for 200 liter systems, and 450$ for the 300 liter systems. The bank lends the home owner, the balance between the system cost and the subsidy. The home owner payment conditions are about 50$ per month, back to the bank. The electric company receives the system’s cost from the bank and transfers it to the supplier- Balton Rwanda. Balton CP distributes Chromagen systems in Uganda and Ghana countries as well.
