By Staff Writer, 17 May 2024

d.light, a company known for providing affordable household products and financing to low-income families, has announced a major initiative to distribute 10,000 subsidised solar home systems to refugees in Northern and Western Uganda.

This effort is part of a broader plan to deliver 23,000 solar systems to refugee communities throughout the country.

The project, backed by a $3 million grant, is funded by the Private Sector Foundation Uganda (PSFU) and the Energising Development (EnDev) international programme, which is supported by the governments of Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, and Switzerland.

The grant aims to facilitate access to affordable, reliable, and sustainable energy, promoting social, economic, and environmental benefits.

The initiative kicked off in April 2024 and is expected to span 12 months.
