Northern Nigeria has the country’s largest potential for solar energy, and the greatest need for electricity. Many communities are beyond the reach of an already overloaded and unreliable grid.
Solar Nigeria is partnering with donors and state governments in the North to deliver reliable solar energy for key services, particularly primary health.
In Kaduna state, Solar Nigeria worked with the state government to bring 24/7 solar power supply for the total power needs at 34 PHCs in rural and peri-urban areas. The project has provided 1.5MW of solar power and covers not only technology and installation, but training and maintenance support geared to secure a long term steady power supply.
