World Bank/IFC to Provide Off-Grid Solar Solutions for Nigeria


The International Finance Corporation (IFC) of the World Bank has unveiled an off-grid solar power solution for Nigeria tagged “Lighting Africa”.

The initiative, according to the Consultant, IFC/World Bank Market Development for Lighting Africa Project, Mr. Fanen Acho, is aimed at bridging the huge gap in the area of access to power while also helping to increase access to affordable, clean and safer solar lighting for more Nigerians living in rural areas and who have low incomes.

According to him, Lighting Africa mobilises the private sector to build and develop markets that enable access to clean, affordable, quality solar lighting products by fostering partnerships among local and global manufacturers and creating new channels through local distribution companies that will help build robust supply chains for off-grid lighting products.
