Salpha Energy has, in collaboration with the Rural Electrification Agency, signed a grant agreement with the Nigerian Electrification Project to improve access to power for the underserved and bridge electricity gaps in the country.
The grant agreement, according to a statement, is part of the Output-Based Fund grant offer for the sale of solar home systems to homes and businesses across Nigeria and implemented by the REA, with support from the World Bank.
The Managing Director, REA, Ahmad Salihijo, signed the grant agreement with the Head of REA’s Project Management Unit, NEP, Anita Otubu, and the Managing Director of Salpha Energy, Sandra Chukwudozie.
Ahmad said the signing of the agreement spoke to the determination of the REA and companies present to secure a better future and increase the nation’s economic growth, describing electricity as a major catalyst to the country’s development.
According to him, there are great investment opportunities in the renewable energy off-grid sector, and the partnership with the REA through the NEP would be responsible for transforming electricity access in Nigeria.
