Nasarawa State government is partnering with Nigeria- German Energy to generate and distribute 30 megawatts of solar energy to rural communities in the state.

The initiative is to diversify the sources of power and complement the inadequate mega watts of electricity supplied to the state from the national grid.

Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura stated this when he received a delegation of the Nigeria-German energy partnership who were in the state to present a memorandum of Understanding on the project.

The Governor welcomed the initiative and assured the delegation that the state govt will study the MoU with a view to ensure early take off of the project.

If the agreement is signed, the Governor said, the state would require 100Megawatts of solar power to serve the densely populated Karu axis of the state.

The leader of the delegation, Abdulkarim Safana told the Governor that the state will provide 70 hectares of land which will be used for the project which is expected to be completed within 16 months.
