We are delighted that you have shown interest in the Nigeria Electrification Project Solar Home Systems programme!

The first step for participating in the NEP SHS program is meeting the program prequalification criteria which qualifies the company to access the Output based Fund (OBF). The OBF provides fixed incentive payments per system installed and independently verified. To participate in the program, both the SHS product and the company of the applicant would need to be approved.

 The OBF applications will be active beginning on April 15, 2019 and will remain open thereafter for applying on a rolling basis. The first batch of decisions will not be communicated before end-June 2019 regardless of the application date. Thereafter, for all rolling basis applicants it will take approximately 4 weeks from the time of application to receive the decision communication.

Solar companies that pre-qualify to access the OBF may be invited to apply for the Market Scale-up Challenge Fund (MSCF) if they have elected this option in the OBF application and possess the required scale up potential to apply for the MSCF.
