COVID-19 Energy Access Relief Fund

The Energy Access Relief Fund (EARF) has been designed to provide up to 4-year tenure, subordinated, unsecured, low-cost, subsidized loans to viable companies that are facing liquidity challenges due to COVID-19. The fund intends to focus on the smaller to mid- sized energy access companies that are addressing the needs of the bottom of the pyramid consumers and expects to make about 90-100 loans. While the fund will seek to be as inclusive as possible, its primary focus is expected to be on loans of less than $1M, within a range of $100K to $2.5M. Energy Access Relief Fund partners and capital providers continue to work toward a first close.

The COVID-19 Energy Access Relief Fund is a fund in development and there's no guarantee the fund will close.

All inquiries should be directed at the Fund Manager, SIMA.
