Nigeria’s electricity crisis is so bad that people are spending three times more running back-up generators and yet they say solar is expensive


Electricity, electricity, electricity. This is the number one issue in Nigeria

When you look at the cost of electricity in Africa’s largest economy, it immediately becomes clear why.

On average Nigerians spend about NGN3,374 ($17) on their monthly electricity bills, according to data from Noip. However, the erratic distribution of power has always compelled folks to seek alternative sources—primarily back-up generators, which bumps up the costs households and businesses spend on electricity quite significantly. On average the monthly cost for the fuel to run these generators adds an additional NGN9,529 ($48) to a household’s bill. That is three times the cost of direct supply.

Yet people say solar is expensive.   Is solar really expensive?
