1.   Create an enabling regulatory framework (import duties exemptions, simple licensing of village grid operators, etc.)

2. Develop a National Electrification Strategy / Plan.

3. Seek financing to facilitate rural energy projects.

4. Create a new institution in charge of rural energy.

5. Extend the grid.
