ENGIE Energy Access, a provider of solar homes systems and mini-grid solutions in Nigeria has connected 50,000 households to solar power and in turn impacting 250,000 lives across the country since coming onboard.
The company also said that it has extended its partnership with the Rural Electrification Agency of Nigeria (REA) via an addendum to the existing output-based fund (OBF) agreement, which provides grant subsidies to make electricity products more affordable for those who need it the most. A statement by the media consultant to the company said that the grant is provided under REA’s Nigeria Electrification Project (NEP), a Federal Government initiative driven by private sector.
The programme also seeks to provide electricity access to households, micro, small and medium enterprises in off-grid communities, tertiary institutions and healthcare facilities across the country through renewable energy sources.
