Environmental Sustainability

At the present population rate of 180 million people, Nigeria will need about 200,000 megawatts (MW), to satisfy its electricity needs. However, due to reasons not limited to generation constraints, the operational generation capacity stands at 3718MW and has in recent times recorded a 70 per cent decline in generation capacity owing to gas supply constraints and vandalism. Consequently leading to frequent national grid collapses and nationwide blackouts.
