Burkina Faso is one of the least electrified countries globally, currently at 19% overall, with 60% of the urban and only 3% of the rural population connected to electricity. The government has made the plan to reach a global 95% electricity access (50% in rural areas) by 2030. The Government also set a target of 50% Renewable Energy in the electric mix by 2030. Nonetheless, off-grid products often offer a quicker and more affordable option to provide modern lighting and energy services to a rural population, something that the Government of Burkina Faso recognizes, and is working together with sectors in the solar home system industry to support.
