In Senegal, the municipality of Ndiaganiao plans to electrify its 38 villages with solar energy. To this end, it has signed a contract with the Senegalese solar solutions company, Nadji-Bi.
“The government plans to light 22 of the 38 villages in our commune as part of the national rural electrification program (PNER), but we cannot expect everything from it,” argued Mayor Gana Gning, to justify the initiative of his municipality.
Thanks to the agreement with Nadji-Bi, the municipality is subsidizing Nadji-Bi Zébu mini-kits consisting of three shatterproof LED bulbs and mobile phone charging devices. The kits will no longer cost 65,000 CFA francs, but 49,000 CFA francs.
“Electrifying the 38 villages of Ndiaganiao will help to combat insecurity linked in particular to the theft of recurring cattle in the area but also to allow students to be able to study at night in the light.”
