We’re solving energy poverty to create jobs
How did you come about providing affordable energy for people?
This solution came about just by understanding the problems of energy supply in Nigeria. Many people are energy starved and energy poor. Globally, over 1.2 billion people are living below energy poverty. In Nigeria alone, about 100 million are living off the grid or on the grid but getting intermittent energy supply and so are energy poor. So, we decided to solve this problem because the problem is solvable. I am the CEO of Smarter Grid International. We are a renewable energy company, and our mission is clear, that no one is left in the dark. Our main idea is to provide affordable, accessible and productive use of energy to people especially those at the base of the pyramid so that they can be brought to the economic fore ground.
