Partnership delivers solar mini-grids to Nigerian rural communities

Global solar developer Renewvia Energy Corporation has partnered with a Nigerian off-grid impact investor, All On, to deploy solar mini-grids to rural communities unserved by conventional utilities in the Niger Delta region.

The agreement includes a commitment of $1.2 million from All On to enable Renewvia to develop and operate solar mini-grids to bring clean energy, and ultimately spur economic development in the region.

According to a joint media statement, the first two mini-grids have been commissioned and are operating in the villages of Akipelai and Oloibiri, to support the surrounding communities.
