Malolo was the pilot test location for biomass technology. We successfully constructed and tested a fully operational small scale biomass power plant. Our experience with this test site helped prepare us to move ahead with the launch of our first round of village level, off-grid electrification projects and helped us to refine a long term regulated biofuel strategy for rural electrification.
