Hydro, Wind Renewable Projects to Come on Stream Soon – Edozien

Lake-Turkana-Wind-Power (1)

The permanent secretary for power, Louis Edozien, during a meeting with a delegation from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said that the power sector’s challenge occasioned by incessant vandalism of gas infrastructure necessitated a renewable energy development plan which identified stages of growth from 2017 to 2030

He said that a lot of new renewable energy sources would soon come upstream, including the 40mw Gurara dam in Kaduna State, the 40mw  Kashimbilla dam in Taraba, 10mw wind farm in Katsina and the 30mw phase one of Kudendan dual fired plant in Kaduna State.

On the new rural electrification implementation strategy now before the President, Edozien said the document contains a change in focus from grid expansion to a more decentralized format that would emphasize micro grids to be fed from solar and small hydros, which would be off-grid.
