VAYA Energy is currently constructing a 100kWp Solar hybrid mini grid in Belel Community, Adamawa State, Nigeria. The project is a public-private partnership initiative with the Rural Electrification Fund (REF) of the Rural Electrification Agency of Nigeria as the public partner.
VAYA Energy will be responsible for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of the isolated mini-grid in Belel, which would also feature battery energy storage for night time power supply. When completed, the project will be operated on a commercial public-private partnership arrangement.
The 100 kWp project will provide electricity to households and commercial businesses in Belel, all of which are currently completely off-grid. The project is slated to be completed in September 2021.
