Since March 2019, the Government of Togo is offering subsidies to Togolese households to cover the cost of off-grid solar power systems. This subsidy will cover the high upfront cost of the solar systems and aims to increase the adoption of solar home systems. Last year, the UK based BBOXX won a tender to electrify 30,000 Togolese household and another company, Soleva signed a similar agreement with the Togo Government. Under this program, the government will issue monthly vouchers to households operating a BBOXX or Soleva system to finance the system.A total of 100,000 households are expected to have installed a solar kit in 2020 and 550,000 households by 2030. This is part of Togo’s strategy to bring access to electricity to 8 million people by 2030.<ref name="https://af.reuters.com/article/topNews/idAFKCN1QJ09L-OZATP">https://af.reuters.com/article/topNews/idAFKCN1QJ09L-OZATP</ref>
