The World Bank has advised government to establish a transparent and sustainable financial model which will allow cross financing of rural electrification off grid solutions with the private sector.
World Bank Country Manager Ina Ruthenburg says rural electrification can be fulfilled through the contribution from grid connected consumers and Government financing alongside the donor contribution.
Ms. Ruthenburg also says for the rural access agenda to take effect, the Rural Electrification Authority’s operational model should be reconsidered to become less engaged in actual implementation of projects and focus on being a facilitator.
She was speaking when she appeared before the parliamentary committee on Energy, Water Development and Tourism.
And Committee Chairperson Ephraim Belemu commended the world bank for their contribution towards the energy sector.
