Raising Awareness of Energy Efficient Light Bulbs Pays Off in Rwanda (French)

In a creative bid to reduce energy poverty, Rwanda’s national utility launched a campaign to distribute energy-saving Compact Fluorescent Light (CFLs) bulbs, effectively using energy efficiency to lower power demand and so it could expand electricity access. The high adoption rate and new energy-saving behavior by customers has helped end-users save. The project is also helping the climate and is the first in Rwanda to earn carbon credits. It is expected to reduce approximately 24,000 tons of CO2 per year, equivalent to taking 5,000 cars off the road.
