This report documents the creation of three micro grids based on solar, biomass, and small hydropower. The electricity generated will be used for income generating activities in targeted communities. The biomass and hydropower plant will be one megawatt while the solar power systems will support the micro grid and provide solar lanterns for evening fishing. This project will create the legal and financial framework for further micro-grid expansion in Zambia.
