Powering communities by supporting innovative clean energy solutions


Pawarim Komuniti will fund a wide range of projects to implement innovative, cost effective models for distribution and delivery of off-grid electricity. Projects will need to demonstrate competitive and affordable connection costs.

Projects should be developed by partnerships of multiple actors and preferably stimulate an ongoing market system. The types of project funded will most likely include solar or hydro micro grids and also projects to distribute higher quality certified solar home systems through cost effective models.

The program will encourage the engagement and involvement of provincial authorities, districts and community groups to strengthen the selected partnerships and endorse ownership and long-term sustainability.

All projects are expected to meet minimum technical requirements and comply with all legal and regulatory requirements, such as the Environmental Act and the Lands Act.
