With support from the Switzerland Embassy in Nigeria, CREDC in 2012 implemented a project titled ‘Promoting Environmental Sustainability through the Use of Central Solar Charging Station as Clean Energy Source for Lighting in Uniaro Community’. The Central Solar Charging Station (CSCS) is a 2.4KW system in a central location within the Community. A total of 40 households were selected by the elders of the community and were provided with Schneider Electric (DIYA) Indoor Lighting System. Fifteen (15) youths of the Community comprising of 8 women and 7 men were trained to install and maintain solar systems. A Local Energy Regulatory Committee (LERC) comprising of 2 Women and a Man were trained to manage the facility and the collection of the fees for charging individual battery. Users pay certain amount of money to charge their batteries and the revenue generated is been used to offset expenses from the day-to-day operations of the Central Charging Station and also for future scaling up.
