REA boss advocates decentralised power supply through off-grid systems

The Managing Director, Rural Electrification Agency (REA), Mrs Damilola Ogunbiyi, has called for the support of the ongoing decentralisation of power supply in the country through its off-grid and stand-alone systems.
Speaking at Alaghodaro Investment Summit recently in Benin City, Edo State capital, an event where investment experts and heads of federal government regulatory agencies met to proffer solutions to the bureaucratic bottlenecks in government that are hindering the growth of businesses in Nigeria.
She said: “Stable power supply is part of institutional reforms we need to support economic growth and progress.”
She assured that Edo State has a lot to gain from the new power supply initiative as talks were ongoing to supply electricity to some markets in the state and government offices.
