New solar plant I.2MW to the national grid

Power generation went up yesterday by 1.2megawatts (Mw) following the inauguration  of a solar electricity plant in the Lower Usman Dam, the Minster of Power, Works and Housing,  Babatunde Fashola, has said.

He said the solar plant, built in partnership with the Japanese government, is the first solar plant tied to the national grid, adding that it has the potential to carry the load of the water works at Usman Dam and capable of producing electricity of about 400 Kilowatts when the sun is high.

It also has the potential to provide excess power to the surrounding communities when the sun is high.

Fashola said the power plant was in fulfilment of government’s plan to increase electricity through incremental power supply to steady and uninterrupted electricity in the county.
