Reducing dependence on Nigeria's electricity grid with solar solutions
Nigeria's failure to provide power to the teeming population is as old as time, in fact, it is now a myth to hear that someplace enjoy 24hrs light for some people. According to the tech cabal, For over 50 years, the country has generated electricity through thermal (84%) and hydropower sources (16%). Yet, the country remains unable to meet its power needs. Renewable energy has become a viable way of generating clean power. Although it is still in its early stages in the country, off-grid solar is growing like wildfire and has been a good means of generating stable power for households. As stated in research done by the tech cabal it is the second source of generating power for most businesses and homes in Nigeria.
Ways to reduce dependence on the National grid

For instance, you have a LED TV of 40W, a standing fan of 15W, a decoder of 20W, four bulbs of 12W each and you can charge phones everything is approximately 100W. Next thing is to go to the market and look for a solar product that offers this power or more. Then see if you can fit it into the budget.
