The presidency has revealed that Nigerians would pay a monthly fee of N4,000 for the FG’s Solar Home Systems.

Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande who disclosed this in a statement titled “25m Nigerians to own 5m solar systems at N4,000 monthly” and released on Sunday November 29, added that the Federal Government’s plan of commencing the process of installation of five million solar home systems in underserved and off-grid communities across the country is in continuation of the implementation of the government’s Economic Sustainability Plan.

The solar programme nicknamed Solar Power Naija, for which installations starts in December, is being implemented by the Rural Electrification Agency.

Akande said;

“An important aspect of the scheme is the option of outright ownership by beneficiaries at a cost ranging from N1, 500 per week to N4, 000 monthly depending on the capacities, for a period of three years.

“The programme will include the assembly or manufacturing of components of off-grid solutions to facilitate the growth of the local manufacturing industry.

“In view of the scale of materials required, solar equipment manufacturers/assemblers will be incentivised to set up facilities in Nigeria, thereby offering additional job opportunities to Nigerians.

“In addition, installation, servicing and payment collections are expected to provide thousands of other jobs. In all, at least 250, 000 jobs will be created.”


While the World Bank which is also participating in the plan is providing a grant to finance 20 per cent of the retail cost of the solar system across the country, the REA which is the lead implementing agencies of the Solar Home System, had through its off-grid solar programme connected the people of Olooji community (Ijebu East) in Ogun State to electricity, for the first time in 200 years.

Olooji solar hybrid has a total capacity of 100KW completed with 304 solar panels, 72 batteries and over 30KM of distribution network cables, serving over 4,000 people.

Poster, your heading does not in any way reflects the message being conveyed. That payment is necessary if u want to become the outright owner of the solar power equipment, and it is 1,500-4,000, to be paid monthly for a period of 3years. What sort of headline is this??
