Sosai Renewable Energies Company Limited (Sosai) seeks to develop solar minigrids in Kaduna, Plateau, and Kogi States in Nigeria. In 2022, with funding from USTDA, Sosai partnered with Energy Markets Group, Sustainable Energy Services International, and Creeds Energy to conduct site assessments of 100 communities for potential development of these minigrids. Of the initial potential 100 sites, the detailed assessments identified 64 communities as most viable, and suitable for complete feasibility studies including financial model, minigrid design, and grid network design. It is expected that the development of all sites would result in new, direct electricity access for over 120,000 rural residents (an estimated 21,000 households) and 20,000 metered connections.
