The project will help to improve livelihood and at the same time mitigate the emission of greenhouse gases – the emission from using petrol/diesel-driven generators will be abated, complement the rural electrification policy objectives of the Nigerian government and the objectives of government to increase the use of renewable energy to generate 10% of electricity demand by 2025.

The affected communities rely on biomass and kerosene lantern and local paraffin lamps to produce heat and light energy. This traditional way of generating energy exposes community members to adverse social, health and environmental impacts. Diesel and petrol generators have become primary source of electricity for many of the rural dwellers that can afford them. The management of diesel and petrol generators can be expensive and a source of noise and air pollution leading to global warming.
Activities will include consultation/first stakeholder & Inception Workshop, training of community youths on installation and maintenance of PVs, Installation of PVs for first set of 20 Households, Installation of PVs for the second set of 20 Households, appraisal/Second Stakeholder workshop, Writing of full project report and dissemination. Groups involved are women and children of the community.
