Résumé
This research project identifies revenue generating scenarios for a small village-based solar project in Pa Village, Burkina Faso, and the impact they have on overall project economics. Assumptions and input values have been taken from industry experts, Pa Village survey and interview data, and other literature sources. These scenarios are researched and analyzed to calculate the revenue contribution to the project as well as the financial return profile of the entire project. With a project capital budget of $80,000 and annual profit of $5,350, the project realizes a payback period of 13.23 years and an Internal Rate of Return of 6.29%. The implementation of a Wifi sales scenario proves to have the most positive project financial return, while also being the riskiest due to uncertainty in the sales forecast. Further work on the project budget and Wifi sales assumptions will aid in mitigating the financial risks of this project.
