ENGIE Energy Access, Nigeria’s leading clean and sustainable energy solutions provider, has announced that it has provided access to renewable energy to more than 40,000 homes and micro, small, and medium scale enterprises (MSMEs) thereby impacting the lives of over 200,000 Nigerians who lacked access to power supply in the two years it has been in operation in Nigeria.

Bankole Cardoso, Managing Director of ENGIE Energy Access, shared the good news while addressing the company’s commercial team and sales agents at a Customers’ Forum, held at the Ikorodu service centre, Lagos on Monday, 15 November, 2021.

“I am thrilled by the excellent results that we have achieved since we began operations in Nigeria. In just over two years we have directly impacted the quality of life of over 200,000 Nigerians with our clean energy and we have also created hundreds of employment opportunities for our sales agents,” he said.

“What’s most impressive is that our journey is only just beginning as we have just started to reap the rewards of our synergies between our Solar Home Systems and Minigrids businesses. As we continue to scale, we will benefit from our increased operational efficiencies and will be able to pass on more cost savings to our customers as affordability and customer service are central to our business strategy.”
