In this article, we’ll walk through different challenges facing Nigerians in fully accepting Solar Energy and their solutions based on the idea that "SOLAR IS THE FUTURE"; stick with me. Before getting started with the challenges facing solar energy in Nigeria, lets define some basic terms in the alternative energy like " solar energy capacity"

With China and the United States of America being top countries on the capacity of installed solar pv, it’s a clear evidence that the famous prediction that solar energy will take over the world power generating system by 2050 is not a doubt.

In this article, we’ll walk through different challenges facing Nigerians in fully accepting Solar Energy and their solutions based on the idea that “SOLAR IS THE FUTURE”; stick with me.

Before getting started with the challenges facing solar energy in Nigeria, lets define some basic terms in the alternative energy like ” solar energy capacity”

In a layman words, solar energy capacity is the maximum generating capacity of installations that uses solar energy sources to generate electricity which of course is the conversion of sun light into useful energy for our homes and offices.


Well, this question has been asked by many Nigerians (even elites) who have in one-way or the other thought about installing solar energy in their homes or offices, but they are not really sure as to how installing solar can give them 24/7 constant light without a support from the grid (NEPA). The answer to this question is YES!

Installing solar energy can give you 24/7 constant light without support from the grid (NEPA). The reason for this question is basically due to the challenges facing energy                generation in Nigeria which we’ll discuss shortly.

It’s a known fact that power supply is a major problem we have in this country and there is no hope as to when we can resolve this ethical problem which have left Nigerian citizens with no choice but to move their business and industry to a other countries where there is available and constant power supply.

Based on analysis by World Bank, Nigeria’s economic crisis is directly related to lack of power supply by 30%. Thus, there is no doubt that solar energy in Nigeria is the future of our economic boom.

Still on the question of why we need to install solar energy in Nigeria, considering the environment here. you will agree with me that most of our energy comes from fossil fuel consumption that has strong implications on the environment, from noise pollution to accumulation of carbon emissions adding to the depletion of the ozone layer.

Let’s not forget that the cost of maintaining a fuel generator in a year can’t be anywhere compared to the cost of installing solar, from analysis done, installing solar will save you thrice the amount we spend on fuel generator in three years.

Here’s our thought on this subject;

  1. LACK OF KNOWLEDGE ABOUT SOLAR ENERGY: From our advertisements and surveys on the knowledge about solar energy in Nigeria, the result has proven that 53% of Nigerians from the age of 16-66 don’t have an ideal of what solar energy is and if it exist in Nigeria. The analysis showed that out of 47% of Nigerians who have knowledge about solar energy, some of them don’t know how it works. At INNOVATE ENERGY NIG LTD , we are on a campaign to increase awareness on how solar energy works and why Nigerians should install solar energy, you can also help to educate others about solar energy in Nigeria by clicking the social media link below, spread the news and let others share their own ideas on solar energy in Nigeria.

Yes, the cost of installing solar energy at first is high. It’s no doubt that this is also one            of  the main challenges facing solar energy in Nigeria.
