Sierra Leone

NRECA International prepared a transmission and distribution investment plan that will be used by the Government of Sierra Leone to expand reliable electricity services to Freetown, the country’s regional capitals, and rural areas of Sierra Leone. Funded by the World Bank, this project will ultimately support a larger expansion plan that will serve the capital and the entire country.

The team evaluated power generation and distribution systems serving the capital, complemented by a more extensive country-wide analysis which evaluated power expansion options. The outcome of this effort will serve as a guide for the government to undertake future grid development activities for the next 15 years.
