BUK launches first megawatt scale solar project in Nigerian university

The Bayero University, Kano on Wednesday energized Nigeria’s first-megawatt scale hybrid solar project in a Nigerian university and the second in the whole country after the Lower Usuma Dam project in Abuja.

The feat was made possible after the successful completion and commissioning of a 1MWp Solar power plant by a technical team of experts and supported by Enerwhere Nigeria Ltd through the Solar Nigeria Project (of the DFID).

The 1MWp system is the flagship project of a DFID funded programme together with a Nigerian university and is the largest project of its kind in the country by any Nigerian government institution.
