Going Green: Replacing Generators with Solar Solutions - How do we Finance it?
Only 1/8 of the power consumption in Lagos comes from the national grid. The Lagos State Government estimate that 23,000 MW is provided by diesel generators. The Lagos State Government will build 1000 MW of solar over the next years, and they plan to bring five million new households’ electricity by 2030. Both fuel and electricity prices have been increasing lately – making this a great business case for why Lagos is ready for solar. Solar power providers can find potential partners and customers in this session, where we also present and discuss how the move from generator to solar can be financed.
