The objective of the project is to increase the use of grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) systems as a sustainable means of generating electricity in selected main islands and smaller islands of the Seychelles, with a focus on small-scale producers who are already connected to the national electricity grid.
The project will pursue this objective by, inter alia:
Together, these actions are designed to play a critical role in “jump-starting” the adoption of solar PV technology in the Seychelles, and in setting the stage for wide-scale replication by reducing the costs of PV technology through a market-based approach that will establish financial incentive mechanisms for PV systems and reduce transaction costs (by creating a reliable supply chain and establishing local capacity for installation and maintenance).
