Nigeria’s Rural Electrification Agency Launches Minimum Subsidy Tender for Mini Grids

April 27, 2019 | Energy

Nigeria’s Rural Electrification Agency (REA) launched the first phase of a minimum subsidy tender to support the development of privately financed and operated mini grids in rural areas.

On April 12th, the REA issued an Invitation for Initial Selection for the first phase of the tender: to build, own, and operate solar hybrid mini grids in 57 sites across four states—Ogun, Cross River, Sokoto, and Niger. These sites will be packaged into four lots (one per state).

The tender is part of the REA’s Nigeria Electrification Project that aims to kick-start the mini grid market and extend electricity services to 300,000 households and 30,000 enterprises through mini grids. The REA has applied to the World Bank for financing to support the Project.

Castalia helped the World Bank prepare the minimum subsidy tender. We advised on the process and workplan for data collection and engagement with the rural communities, as well as on the tender design and the preparation of tender documents.

Interested applicants should submit their applications in hard copy to the REA by 12:00 noon (WAT) on June 3rd, 2019. The Initial Selection Document can be downloaded here.
