This toolkit was developed to inform rural communities of the benefits electricity can bring and the advantages of electricity from renewable energy sources. The purpose of this toolkit is to help rural communities in Sub-Saharan Africa
understand and benefit from the economic, productive and social opportunities from electricity access. The aim is to provide these communities with user-friendly information about the benefits, opportunities and responsibilities arising through new electricity connections, with guidance on how to bring these opportunities to life. The aim is to also develop ownership of the system within the local community by enabling local community to take a lead role in renewable electricity development in their area.
