Decentralized Infrastructure for Rural Transformation (IDTR) programme ran until 2011. The project invested USD 10.15 million in solar PV resulting in installation of 10174 solar PV systems.

The project used auctions to award 4-year installation and service contracts to concession companies. The auctions were held simultaneously for 14 areas with a given budget per area, and the bids with the largest number of users per area were awarded the contracts.

In 2014, the second phase of the IDTR project named Electricity and Renewable Energy Access programme was launched with a World Bank loan of USD 21.3 million.
