Nigerian business power struggles.

Power lines

I’m honestly fed up with how everyone talks and lamentations about power issues in my country.

Here’s a different approach; I want to make it a personal challenge…not for Nigeria, or Africa, mind you. Just for me and mine.

Here goes.

Challenge:

Power cuts since before I was born. Poor electricity distribution and generation. No data-driven improvements to the power sector, and the “common man’s” apathy as icing on the cake.

The Solution:

A hybrid energy generating grid consisting of solar, geothermal, wind and a backup diesel/petrol/gas/bio-fuel generator.

How achievable is this as a 10 year project? Is it too expensive for one man to achieve? I do not believe so.

Watch this space for progress reports. And wish me luck.
