The Lagos State Government is committed to achieving one gigawatt (1,000MW) solar Photovoltaic (PV) electricity system.
Governor Babajide Sanwoolu, who disclosed this in Lagos, said following the creation of the Lagos Electricity Market, the state will fulfill its potential as Africa’s model mega city.
He commended the Nigerian outgoing President, Mohammadu Buhari for signing the Constitutional Alteration Bill No. 33.
He noted that the assent given to the bill was a historic move that grants the state governments the authority to regulate electricity generation, transmission, and distribution.
He said: “The bill will create a Lagos Electricity Market, leading to increased access to electricity, investments, and job opportunities.
“The new bills will promote efficiency, leading to better service delivery. We’ve been preparing for this by launching an Electricity Policy, publishing our off-grid strategy, presenting our Integrated Resource Plan, and drafting a law to establish the Lagos Electricity Market,” the Lagos State Governor said.
He expressed hope that Lagos State will in the next few years, take more responsibility for our growth and the fulfillment of its potential.
