This week the U.S. Agency for International Development agreed to fund the construction of a 16 megawatt solar plant at the Shurandam industrial park for the Kandahar Electricity Department. The Industrial Association of Afghanistan has been advocating for this project for several years, based on an idea that originated in the CIPE-supported Afghanistan National Business Agenda in 2011.
