    Photos below are from Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (ATBU), Bauchi, and the Federal University of Petroleum Resources (FUPRE), where the Federal Government in 2021 completed and commissioned Solar Hybrid power plants, as part of a Muhammadu Buhari administration initiative called the Energizing Education Programme (EEP).

    The EEP has been designed to provide 37 Federal Universities and 7 affiliated Teaching Hospitals with clean and reliable off-grid electricity.

    It also involves the rehabilitation of existing distribution infrastructure, provision of street lighting, as well as the construction of a world class renewables training centre in each of the beneficiary institutions.

    ATBU got a 1.2MW solar hybrid power plant, while FUPRE got a 1.35MW plant.

    The EEP has so far been completed at 5 Federal Universities: ATBU (Bauchi), FUAM (Makurdi), FUNAI (Ebonyi), BUK (Kano), FUPRE (Delta)
