Canadian firm WATT Renewables powers Ogun community with micro grid
A Canadian hybrid energy provider, WATT Renewable Corporation, is bringing hopes of constant electricity again to Nigerians. Managed in Nigeria by its subsidiary, WATT Renewable Limited has proved that constant electricity can better be achieved by technological advancements than relying fully on utility power grids.
The company, through its micro grid technology said it is bringing power back to homes, businesses, schools and clinics within an under-served community called Loburo, Mowe in Ogun State. This is in addition to having recently reached an agreement to provide a Proof of Concept to a telecommunication technology provider with a view to deploying WATT hybrid energy solutions to over 300 of its Base Tower Stations.
According to the Chief Operating Officer at WATT Renewable Corporation, Oluwole Eweje, he said that WATT’s unique selling point is engaging in intensive community engagement sessions with community leaders and members of the community to better understand community needs and affordability.
