This project primarily consists of a 50 MW solar power plant being developed in Kaduna state in north-western Nigeria. Once completed, it will generate 82,500 megawatt hours of clean electricity, which will be enough to meet the daytime requirements of roughly 600,000 Nigerian homes.

This investment was initiated by Access through its co-Development Facility competition, an Africa-focused platform designed to bridge the gap between early-stage projects and the resources they require to operate.

Quaint (Nigeria) and Flatbush Solar (Cameroon) won the inaugural edition of this competition at the Africa Energy Forum in June this year.
