SUPERVISION OF INSTALLATION,

COLLECTION OF PAYMENTS AND MAINTENANCE OF SOLAR HOME SYSTEMS (SHS)

IN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE RURAL ELECTRIFICATION AND TRANSMISSION PROJECT (RETP)


The Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) plans to extend grid-based electricity supply to provincial towns, district towns and nearby rural areas in the near future providing grid quality electricity to 40% of rural households by 2020 and 70% by 2030. In rural areas, with no access to public grids, the RGC seeks to encourage private development of mini-grids based on diesel and/or renewable energy sources.

 

 

Under the Rural Electrification and Transmission Project (RETP),

the Solar Homes System (SHS) program has been developed to offer the inhabitants in off-grid rural areas, where it is expected that grid or mini-grid supply will not reach within next 5-10 years, with the opportunity of having basic electricity supplies. The SHS purchase is financed with subsidy and loan from the REF, with repayment within 4 years.








This project is organized in 2 phases:

 

Phase 1: Supervision of the installation of up to 12 000 SHS (13 months) distributed in more than 400 settlements;

Phase 2: Collection of payments and maintenance of the SHS units. (On 4 years duration):



            ·        Collection of the loan repayment from the SHS beneficiaries every month from the date of installation up to the end

                           ·        Operation and Maintenance of SHS

                           ·        Updating 2 databases :

            + Operation & maintenance database

            + Loan Repayment database;

                           ·        Development of user instructions leaflet.
