This will provide grant subsidies to make electricity products more affordable for final consumers.

In addition, the company claimed that it had reached a significant milestone by linking 50,000 households to solar electricity, affecting 250,000 people across the country. 

ENGIE Energy Access Nigeria's managing director Bankole Cardoso said, “Reaching this milestone is an incredible accomplishment for our team and evidence of not just hard work, but our commitment to bringing clean, affordable energy to those without electricity access across Nigeria.”
