Total Nigeria Plc has reiterated its commitment to providing better energy with the deployment of solar hybrid solutions in strategic service stations across Nigeria.
The company said it has also gone beyond the introduction of the first solar service station it rolled out in West Africa in 2013.

According to a statement, the company said it is meeting the energy needs of Nigerian homes through its solar home solutions designed to combat unstable power supply and provide constant electricity.

From the giant step it took in 2013, the company said it has inaugurated a total of eight solar-powered service stations in different parts of the country – Lagos, Abuja, Kano, Kaduna, Asaba, among others.

The company further noted that its deep experience in providing solar energy in Nigeria is based on the use of its high-end technology and unrivalled expertise.
Through its installations, the Nigerian subsidiary of the French oil major, has established the cost savings benefits and effectiveness in the use of solar energy in Nigeria coupled with its abundant solar resource.
“Developing renewable energy is a strategy for the Total Group in the evolving energy market and an industrial responsibility to combat the menace of climate change,” the company said.

The company has also expanded the entire value chain necessary for the future growth of renewable energies to include the storage (battery) sector with the acquisition of SAFT; known for its innovative and technological know-how.
“The quality of Total’s solar products and services characterises the new look of position in the Nigerian solar market and most importantly its commitment to better energy,” the company.
