Main objectives
The objective of the Third Phase of the Energy for Rural Transformation Program Project is to increase access to electricity in rural areas of Uganda

Main activities
There are three components to the project, the first component being on-grid energy access. This component includes four sub-components: grid extension and associated connections, grid intensification and associated connections, household connections from existing lines, and implementation support for on-grid energy access. The second component is the off-grid energy access. This component covers off-grid energy access, including the installation of solar PV systems for public institutions in rural areas; business development support; provision of credit facilities to enhance electricity access; and quality standards enforcement support. Finally, the third component is the institutional strengthening and impacts monitoring. This component will finance TA and capacity development required to accelerate electricity access.
