With the support of the World Bank, Togo launched the ICZO project in 2017. The CIZO project uses digital and solar energy to electrify rural areas off-grid in order to improve the living conditions of about 2 million Togolese by providing electricity to 300,000 households. The project aims to distribute individual solar kits at affordable costs by offering to pay in instalments via the electronic wallet solutions offered by mobile operators. The kits can charge 5 lamps, a television and a radio on a 12-volt battery.
