Speaking during the launch at its headquarters in Abuja, the Managing Director of REA, Ahmad Salihijo Ahmad, said the project, which was done in partnership with the Korean Energy Project sought to establish an integrated energy management system capable of hosting all mini grids in the country and four standalone mini-grids (total capacities 1.6 MWp & 3.0 MWh) in 4 (four) unelectrified areas around the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Ahmad stated that other auxiliary productive use of the equipment included smart metering, energy efficient lighting, and water systems, among others as part of the intervention.

“The milestone achieved under the Korean Energy Project is a testament of our resolve towards collaboration with development partners in delivering our mandate. The REA is always thrilled with the deployment of sustainable electricity in our communities.”

The Korean Ambassador to Nigeria, Kim Young-Chae stated that “The Republic of South Korea has made a commitment through the Official Development Assistance fund to support the Nigerian Power Sector particularly on the development of Solar Mini-grids.”
