An international Solar energy firm with offices in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, Asteven Solar Nigeria, has unveiled plans to generate 50megawatts of solar power for distribution to people across the country within the next two years through specially designed panels. The organisation’s managing director and chief executive officer, Dr Sunny Akpoyibo, said Nigeria could bridge its energy gap that has become a major challenge for the survival of the nation’s economy, if it strategically leverages on renewable energy, especially from solar that is in abundant supply through constant Sun shine.He stated that the company was massively investing in service centres across Nigeria to ensure the quality of all its panels, batteries, LED lights and other components.
Akpoyibo said that if established, the initiative has the capacity to create 500, 000 direct jobs by accelerating access to affordable power solutions to old and existing small and medium enterprises across the country through specially designed channels.He told a gathering of industry stakeholders that his firm had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Green Energy Finance International Limited to implement a model that will guarantee an affordable flexibility to make low-income earning Nigerians acquire the power system.
