Could solar power end Nigeria’s power cuts?

Nigerians spend an estimated $14 billion a year on small-scale generators.

Solar can be connected to a country’s electricity grid or run off the grid making it the most practical option for improving access in Nigeria.

In Nigeria’s capital Lagos the noise of petrol-driven generators coming from shops and offices is common because of the country’s numerous power cuts that can make running a business difficult.

One businessman, Femi Adeyemo, the CEO of Arnergy, says that widespread adoption of solar energy could be one answer to the country’s power problems.
