10 MW Kumbotso solar plant becomes operational in Nigeria

The first-ever grid-connected 10 MWp solar power plant in Nigeria has been inaugurated in Kano state.

The solar plant required an investment of $15 million. The renewable energy power plant is built on a 24-hectare site in the Kumbotso Local Government Area. The project demonstrates proof of a successful medium-sized solar energy deployment in Nigeria and will catalyse the growth of the power sector in the country. The Kumbotso solar plant, which was tendered in 2020, is being implemented by Haske Solar Company.
