Firm Brings Solar Power to Nigerian Health Centres

Volsus Energy has installed solar power mini-grids in local healthcare facilities across the country in an effort to cut the rate of incidents caused by poor or non-existent access to electricity. According to the energy firm, sustained energy poverty in Nigeria and most parts of Africa requires critical evaluation as it affects everything from childbirth to vaccine storage. The nation faces the triple challenge of providing reliable power supply, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and keeping energy affordable to consumers. The availability of electricity has worsened over the years, with the government struggling to meet the growing demand.
