KfW/AFD Rural Solar Photovoltaic Electrification Project (Morocco)

In June 2002, Morocco's Office National de l'Electricité (ONE) entered into a fee-for-service partnership with a renewable energy services company (RESCO) to electrify rural households by using solar PV systems to produce electricity. The RESCO is responsible for the installation and maintenance of solar equipment as well as the collection of users' fees in 24 of Morocco's 62 prefectures and provinces.

In the fee-for-service model, customers pay an initial connection fee and a monthly service fee. ONE also provides an equipment subsidy to consumers that enables the partnership to offer electrical service at affordable rates, by offsetting the high installation and maintenance costs associated with solar home systems.
