Executive Summary of Solar Business Plan In Nigeria
INTRODUCTION of Solar Business Plan In Nigeria
Since the deregulation of the electricity sector in 2005 through the Electric Power Sector Reform Act (EPSRA), Nigeria’s energy market has made attempts to diversify its oil dependent energy sector. However, it was the recent economic crisis that forced the Federal Government of Nigeria to review the sector more intensively and initiate steps towards opening opportunities in renewable sources, particularly solar.
The government has big ambitions documented in its “30:30:30 electricity vision” that aims to generate 30 GW of installed on-grid electricity capacity by 2030, of which 30% of total energy capacity is to be covered by renewables. The largest source and potential to meet its target lies with solar energy, spurring the Federal Government to initiate significant developments in regulatory and legal frameworks to improve investor confidence and private investment in the market. These ambitions have led to the realisation of 14 signed Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) in 2016 with local and international utility-scale developers that are expected to add 1,200 MW of solar capacity to the grid.
The volume of developers in the country’s first round of solar PPAs is not a surprise when the excess demand and solar potential of Nigeria are put into perspective. Nigeria boasts one of the largest populations in Africa with an estimated 182 million people (as of 2015). Of said 182 million, approximately 60% of the population don’t have access to stable or any electricity, and those that do only have a per capita electricity consumption of 151kWh per year; in comparison, Ghana has a per capita electricity consumption 3 times higher than Nigeria and South Africa’s electricity consumption is 30 times higher (Heinrich Böll Stiftung Nigeria, 2017). Nigeria only has an installed generation capacity of 12,000 MW, and to meet the electricity demand for the total population Nigeria’s power ministry estimates that about 40,000 MW is required. The excess demand thus offers ample opportunities for solar expansion that will improve the social and economic conditions of Nigeria.

The Market of Solar Business Plan In Nigeria
The average MSMEs in Nigeria spends about 40% of operational costs on environmental and health destructive diesel and other fossil fuel, resulting in very little profit margins, uncompetitive products and generally unsustainable ventures. Therefore, future economic growth crucially depends on the long-term availability of energy from sources that are affordable, accessible and environmentally friendly. To achieve universal access to energy for inclusive growth in Nigeria, it is imperative that clean energy solutions are deployed for both residential and productive uses. It is therefore important to start a solar (renewable) energy company.
The provision of solar electricity to serve various industrial clusters of MSMEs can power their business operations with clean energy in a profitable manner. This would boost economic activities both in the off-grid and grid-connected areas as electricity supply from the national grid is still very limited. Solar power therefore provides a more reliable solution to meet their energy requirements.
