The Shiroro Hydro Power Station (SHPS) will soon double its operating capacity of 300mw through solar plant. Alhaji Dauda Abdulaziz, SHPS Chief Operating Officer, disclosed this on Thursday in Shiroro to a team from Infrastructure Concessions Regulatory Commission (ICRC), Nigeria Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) and Bureau for Public Enterprises (BPE).
Abdulaziz said that the new solar plant would be digitally controlled instead of the conventional manual system. “This new solar form of energy generation we are introducing will generate additional 300mw. With this progress, Nigerians will henceforth enjoy more power supply. “It is a project that has prospect of employment for skilled young Nigerians,” he added.
