Best practices for photovoltaic household electrification programs. Lessons from experiences in selected countries

World Bank Technical Paper ( 324): xviii + 103 pp.
Best practices for photovoltaic household electrification programs. Lessons from experiences in selected countries
An examination is presented of the benefits and applicability of photovoltaic (PV) systems in providing electrification to households in developing countries. PV systems are technically reliable, and, under the right conditions, solar home systems can offer lighting and other services to large numbers of households that are poorly served by existing energy sources.
