The International Renewable Energy Agency has announced plans to install eleven solar-battery mini-grids in Lesotho which will have a combined generation capacity of 1.8 MegaWatts (MW). The mini-grids will be installed by the OnePower, United States (US) based non-profit out of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and will reportedly supply power to 20,000 people and seven health centres through 7,300 new electricity connections. The European finance development institution (EDFI) and the Electrification Financing Initiative (ElectriFI), have announced panels will generate up to 3.48GWh of electricity annually and will generate 100 jobs during construction and six permanent roles. The power networks will offer electricity supply to customers for a cost-reflective tariff of L5 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) after PowerOne establishes a business plan.
