Off-grid electricity access rates increase in 2022

In 2022, South Korea will allocate just over $12.4 million in funding to the Nigerian federal government for the installation of solar mini-grids in rural areas. The project, led by energy providers S&D Powernics and ILJIN Electrics, will bring the benefits of electricity, including improved security and nighttime activity, to unserved populations.

After developing six mini-grids to facilitate rural electrification in Nasarawa State, energy provider Husk Power Systems will deliver its seventh mini-grid to Sabon Gida in Lafia City in 2022.  The company plans to reach 500 solar hybrid mini-grids by 2026.
