After about 150 years of reportedly living without any form of electricity supply, Angwan Rina, a remote community in Plateau State is finally to be connected to off grid electricity supply, OGN reports.
Being one of the two beneficiary communities of the state’s pilot off grid power project – the other being Demshin, Angwan Rina would in a matter of days begin to see its homes and village squares electrified by electricity from the sun.
Managing Director of indigenous solar power construction firm, GVE Ltd, Mr. Ifeanyi Orajaka, whose company is undertaking the mini grid solar project for the government of Plateau announced this on his twitter handle.
It was however learnt that as Angwan Rina gets its homes connected to solar electricity, Demshin, which is a neighbouring village to it would also get connected simultaneously. Both communities are expected to be powered by two separate 50 kilowatts (kW) solar mini grid systems.
