The main objective of the GET FiT Program was to assist East African nations in pursuing a climate resilient low-carbon development path resulting in growth, poverty reduction and climate change mitigation. ERA tendered out Solar/ PV concessions on the basis of a reverse auction tender, following the successful example of South Africa. During this “Dutch auction” or reverse bidding process, developers were asked to bid a price per kWh – in addition to documenting compliance with the established technical, economic and financial, environmental and social as well as legal requirements under GET FiT. Concessions were awarded after a thorough due diligence process to the cheapest eligible bidder(s). Selected developers will receive an output-based GET FiT Premium Payment to bridge the gap between a predetermined tariff set by ERA and their offer.
