Kakira Sugar Uganda Limited signs agreement to produce 20MW Cogen Baggasse Electricity

By Moses Mugalu
Kakira Sugar Limited has signed an agreement to produce 20MW at a subsidised rate. In April, Kakira Sugar Ltd signed the first Developer Financing Agreement for a bagasse cogeneration under the GET FiT Support. The GET FiT programme was designed to leverage more private investment into renewable energy generation projects in Uganda.

GET FiT is being supported by Norway, the United Kingdom and Germany as well as the World Bank through their Partial Risk Guarantee instrument.

Kakira will enjoy a 50 per cent front end subsidy payment on top of the $8.1 cents per KWh paid by the off-taker - the Uganda Electricity Transmission Company Ltd. Kakira Sugar Limited issued a $30m 10-year corporate bond on the Uganda Securities Exchange in 2013 as the company sought funds to expand its businesses.
