From 2010 to 2012, NRECA International partnered with Uganda’s Rural Electrification Administration (REA) to define the country’s electrification strategy through the Uganda Accelerated Rural Electrification Program. Funded by the World Bank, this project extended into 2014 and NRECA International developed a master electrification plan for one new electric service territory in Uganda.
In 2011, the NRECA International team trained boards and staff members of two electric cooperatives and REA staff under the Strengthening Electric Cooperative Programs, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Cooperative Development Program.
In 2016, NRECA International continues to play a key role in the country’s aggressive plan to rapidly increase electricity access in its rural areas. Under the REA Master Plans project funded by Power Africa and USAID/Uganda, NRECA International will develop five new master plans for more additional rural service territories in Uganda.
