WORLD BANK DELEGATION VISITS HAVENHILL’S SOLAR MINI-GRID
Last Saturday, Jon Exel (Senior Energy Specialist at World Bank) and Tatia Lemondzhava (Energy Specialist at World Bank) joined us on a visit to Havenhill Synergy’s Solar Mini-Grid at Kigbe Community in Abuja, Nigeria.
Jon leads the Nigeria Electrification Project, a $350 million World Bank program to increase access to electricity services for households, public educational institutions, and underserved (MSMEs) micro, small, and medium enterprises.
The purpose of the visit was to learn from our experiences, assess the impact of clean energy access on the host community and learn from other local realities that could shape the implementation of the Nigeria Electrification Project.
During the visit, we shared the lessons learnt over 15 months of operating a modern solar mini-grid with both Jon and Tatia. They both visited households and commercial users of our mini-grid. Jon conducted numerous interviews with both household and commercial users of the mini-grid in a bid to assess the impact and weigh their experiences since the deployment of the mini-grid.
