Plateau Gov. inaugurates mini-grid solar power project
Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau on Thursday inaugurated two mini-grid 50 kilowatts power projects in Demshin and Angwan Rina communities in Shendam, his home Local Government.
The projects were executed through Plateau Government partnership with Federal and German governments in conjunction with European Union.
Lalong said the state government was encouraged by the impact that the project created and would work toward replicating it in other communities.
The Minister of Works, Power and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, represented by ministry official, Mr Faruk Yabo, said the project was a demonstration of the importance government attached to the provision of electricity to rural areas.
