Taking mobile towers off-grid in Nigeria

An energy services company and a telecommunications service provider are teaming up in Nigeria to transition mobile cell towers from diesel to solar and bundle electricity and connectivity solutions for off-grid communities.


Working with Husk Power, Hotspot is going zero-carbon from design to installation of new mobile towers. This will reduce capital and operational costs and accelerate the telecom’s energy transition. At the same time it avoids risk from global diesel price volatility. It also means Hotspot can offer 100% clean energy service to mobile and data customers in Nigeria on a 24/7 basis.

The collaboration will also allow the two companies to introduce cost-effective energy and digital communication services to off-grid communities in Nigeria.
