Nigeria’s sunlight adequate for power generation – NSE

Chairman of Kaduna State branch of Nigeria Society of Engineers (NSE), Engineer James Upahi, has said that with Nigeria’s 40 degree centigrade weather, solar ought to be adopted as alternative source of power to at least serve domestic purposes, Daily Trust reports.

Speaking at the opening ceremony of a 10-day training workshop on ‘Photo Voltaic Design, Energy Audit, Installation and Maintenance of Solar Power Supply System’ Upahi stressed that Nigeria’s abundant sunlight is enough for power generation.

He said; “If China with -18 degree centigrade can generate power with solar, there is no reason why we should experience power outage in Nigeria with our abundant sunlight.”

Earlier in his remark, the Project Manager of Austrian-Nigerian Initiative, Engineer David Kelvin, said the training is aimed at equipping participants with knowledge of solar power installation and maintenance.
