World Bank to fund 1,000 mini solar power grids in Nigeria


The World Bank's president, Ajay Banga, announced plans to financially support the construction of 1,000 mini solar power grids in Nigeria through collaboration with the government and private sector. 

Nigeria currently faces a shortage in power generation despite a population of over 200 million, leading to heavy reliance on petrol and diesel generators for households and businesses. 

To address this issue, the World Bank has already funded nearly 150 mini grids to provide electricity to communities without access, and they aim to increase this number to 1,000 with the government's cooperation.
