Rensource, a leading West African renewable energy services provider supported by I&P since 2020, is deploying a 700 KWp solar photo-voltaic plant to Nigeria´s largest egg producer, Premium Poultry Farms.
The project is led in partnership with the Norwegian impact investment company, Empower New Energy.
This landmark project is one of the largest power purchase agreements for solar energy signed in the solar sector in Nigeria and will represent the poultry industry’s largest single clean energy project. The power plant is expected to operate for at least 25 years and will generate ca. 1 gigawatt hour of clean energy annually, save up to 25 000 tons of CO2 in its lifetime and contribute to Abuja´s fight against local air pollution.
“This solution for Premium Poultry Farms, Nigeria’s largest egg producer, demonstrates our ability to meet the energy needs of a diverse array of industrial customers. We are honored to supply affordable clean energy to further grow Nigeria’s critically important agricultural sector, while cutting emissions”
Ademola Adesina, founder and CEO of Rensource.
