After the successful conclusion of the advocacy phase of PREEEN project, CREDC with support from the UNDP/GEF Small Grant Programme commenced the direct implementation phase in 2010 with a Project titled “Access to Electricity in Odighi Community in Edo State using Photo Voltaic”. The objectives of the Project are to increase access to electricity in Odighi Community using solar (photo voltaic) systems; to build capacity in the community to install and maintain solar systems and; to create awareness in Edo State on the potential for renewable energy technologies (RETs) to address the energy crisis in the State and mitigate the emission of greenhouse gases. A total of 40 households were provided with electricity using solar generators and 50 youths from the community were trained on how install and maintain solar systems.
