The funding is significant because it concerns a risky fragment of Africa’s solar energy. USAID added that the platform provides seed funding to solar start-ups to support geographic expansion throughout Africa, test new business models and tap into private and public financing, and that the new $4 million fund is expected to create up to 120,000 additional connections in off-grid communities.
