Briefly: Nigerian Firms To Generate Electricity From Solar


For those who missed this yesterday, this is good news!
In a bid to drive the Nigeria's economy towards new energy sources, the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) has issued on-grid licences to four companies to generate 774 megawatts (mw) of electricity on Monday in Abuja. Meanwhile, two of the companies given the licence are to generate electricity from solar while others will ride on gas.
The companies, Pan Africa Solar Limited, based in Kankia, Katsina State and Nigeria Solar Capital Partners Limited, based in Ganjuwa, Bauchi State were issued the license to generate 24mw and 100mw respectively from solar.
