Providing Sustainable Energy in Ofetebe Community Using Solar Micro Off-Grid Facility. Project Location: Ofetebe Community, Ovia North East of Edo State, Nigeria
The Project goal is to mitigate climate change through the provision of clean energy services to 40 households in Ofetebe Community to reduce CO2 emission in Ofetebe Community and ensure sustainable management of the local environment. An inception workshop and appraisal workshop will be organized to create awareness within the Community and Edo State on the potentials of renewable energy to increase access to sustainable energy. Solar Micro Off-Grid Facility (SMOF) will be used to generate 4,000 watts (4kw) of electricity in a central location within the community and distributed to power an existing community borehole, the Community Clinic and 40 Households. Electricity will be supplied daily by the SMOF from 6pm - 10pm (4 hours of electricity supply). The 40 household beneficiaries will have electricity supplied from individual battery pack (backup power) for extended period of 2-8 hours depending on usage. A prepayment keypad meter shall be installed in each household to ensure payment of electricity used/consumed. 30 youths would be trained to maintain and install Solar Off-Grid Systems. To ensure that the Community has full ownership of the project, the elders of the Community will have the sole responsibility to nominate beneficiaries of the project. With the supervision of CREDC experts, the trained community youths will serve as technicians in the installation process. A Local Energy Regulatory Committee will be set up in the Community with all members resident in the community to oversee the day to day running of the facility.
