This shall be complemented by Government funding of US$33.20 and it intends to apply part of the proceeds topayments for goods, works, related services and consulting services to be procured under the project. The Project Development Objectiveof Energy for RuralTransformation III Uganda Project is to increase access to electricity in rural areas of Uganda. The project will include the following components: Component 1: On-grid Energy Access (US$144.6million) This component covers on-grid investments to be implemented by the Rural Electrification Agency (REA). 1-1.            Grid Extension and Associated Connections (US$99.2 million: US$80 million IDA, US$19.2 millionGoU). This sub-component includes the construction of 21 distribution grid extension projects that span over 1,800 km andassociated connections. These lines have been identified as priority investment for expanding rural access by the Government andwere selected based on the Indicative Rural Electrification Master Plan (IREMP). The project will fund household connections andbasic wiring methods (ready boards) associated with the sub-component to alleviate consumer affordability barriers. Householdconsumers whose connection and internal wiring costs are prefunded by the project will be required to repay, in installments, thefull costsover a period agreed with GoU/REA. The project will not fund last-mile connections for commercial and industrialcustomers. 1-2. Grid Intensification and Associated Connections(US$29.5 million). This sub-component includes short extensions to the medium voltage (MV) and low voltage (LV) network andassociated connections to potential customers who are relatively close to the existing grid. The implementationof the sub-componentwill be through: (i) turnkey contracts for both extensions and connections implemented by REA on behalf of the ServiceProviders(SPs); and (ii) framework contracts between REA and SPs allowing SPs to identify, package, and implement extensions and connectionsin their respective networks. 1-3. Household Connections from Existing Lines (US$10 million). Thissub-component will finance "last-mile" connections and basic low-cost internal wiring for household consumers along the existingdistribution network, not covered under sub-components 1-1 and 1-2. Both sub-components 1-1 and 1-2 will extend theLV network  to reach potential customers. This sub-component, in contrast, will finance customerswithin the "no pole connections" distance (i.e. within 35 meters that can be covered by service connection cables) from theexisting network. 1-4. Implementation Support for On-grid Energy Access (US$5.9 million). Thissub-component will support the implementation of on-grid energy access activities. It includes planning, coordination, andimplementation support for REA, construction supervision, consumer sensitization and mobilization, independent verification ofconnections, and capacity development for REA to strengthen its oversight roles in rural electrification. Some of thesupportprovided to REA will also support the initial capacity building needsfor SPs to accelerate access scale-up. Component 2: Off-grid Energy Access (US$25million:) This component covers off-grid energy access, including the installation of solar Photovoltaic (PV) systemsfor public institutions in rural areas; business development support; provision of credit facilities to enhance electricity access;and quality standards enforcement support. This component will finance necessary consultancy services, capacity buildingactivities, and operations costs. The componentwill be implemented by several implementing agencies?Ministry of Health (MoH),Ministry of Water and Environment (MoWE), Ministry of Education, Science, Technology and Sports (MoESTS), PSFU, and UECCC?under thecoordination of the Project Coordination Unit (PCU) within MEMD. 2-1. Institutional Solar PV Systems (US$11million).  This sub-component will support provision of solar PV systems forpost-primary schools, health clinics, and water stations in rural growth centers. MoH, MoWE, and MoESTS will be the executingagencies. 2-2. Business Development Support for Rural Access (US$1.5 million).This sub-component includes the following activities: (i) business development support for private contractors, electricians,and wiremen; (ii) promotion of organization and self-regulation among the solar business; and (iii) provision of electricity forisolated areas through pico-hydro schemes. The Private Sector Foundation Uganda (PSFU) will implement thiscomponent and willfacilitate the activities in rural areas to fostercommunity-based schemes to expand access. 2-3. FinancialIntermediation for Rural Access (US$11.5 million:This sub-component will provide credit line and guarantee instruments through Uganda Energy Credit Capitalization Company Ltd(UECCC) to Participating Financial Institutions (PFIs) to facilitate consumer financing needs and working capital for solarbusinesses supporting off-grid access. It also includes technical assistance to strengthen UECCC,[1] the implementing agency of thissub-component. UECCC is expected to provide a solar refinance facility and aworking capital support facility to PFIs foron-lending. The working capital support primarily targets the solar companies providing consumer financing through pay-as-you-go orsimilar arrangements. The consumer refinance primarily targets end users who purchase solar systems oncash-basis. A partial riskguarantee instrument will also be designedto be offered to PFIs to partially cover their credit risk related totheir lending tosolar companies. 2-4. Quality Assurance for Solar Market Development (US$1 million).This sub-component aims to promote quality assurance and awareness of solar products so as to enable the market for affordable,high-quality PV productsin rural areas. Support provided to complement market activities willbe in the form of: (i) publicawareness campaigns to inform consumersof the benefits of solar lighting products and to educate consumers on the characteristicsof good quality products; and (ii) strengtheningof the Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS) and the National QualityAssurance framework[2]for PV systems in order to curtail the inflow of cheap, low quality systems. This sub-component will be implemented by REA incollaboration with the UNBS. Component 3: Institutional Strengthening and Impacts Monitoring(US$5.6 million) This component will finance technical assistance and capacity development required to accelerate electricityaccess. It will also support the Government to carry out an Impact Monitoring and Evaluation of the ERT-2.
