According to the World Bank, over 80 million Nigerians are without access to electricity and millions more suffer from poor service despite efforts by the Federal Government to provide electricity in the country. And also about 60 Million of these Nigerians spend more than N1.6 Trillion on fossil fuel generators yearly. The Federal Government of Nigeria however expects renewable energy to fill a substantial portion of the electricity poverty gap in the country.

In Africa, Power is Inaccessible, Unaffordable, and Unreliable for most people. This traps people in poverty; students find it difficult to read after dark, clinics cannot refrigerate vaccines and businesses have shorter operating hours.  

Today, more than 25 African countries face an energy crisis.  The African continent is well endowed with energy resources, but most remain untapped.
