Power Africa is a U.S. Government-led initiative that helps bring critical power projects online and connects people to electricity by removing barriers, particularly the financial and regulatory roadblocks that have stood in the way of power delivery in sub-Saharan Africa.  “Power Africa represents the U.S. Government’s commitment to supporting Malawi to achieve its electrification goals and improve the quality of life for thousands of Malawians,” said Ambassador Palmer at the signing ceremony.
