Overview of Solar Energy in Nigeria

Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy source available in the world today, and fortunately Nigeria has some of the richest solar resources in the planet.

Solar power is energy from the sun that is converted into thermal or electrical energy.

Electrical energy is generated when Photovoltaic principles are used to produce electricity viz solar panels made of silicon becomes charged electrically when subjected to sunlight.

The electrical charge is consolidated in the PV panel and directed to the output terminals to produce low voltage (direct current) of usually 6-24 volts.

The solar panels are directed at the solar south in the northern hemisphere and to the solar south in the northern hemisphere at an angle dictated by the geographic location and latitude of where they are to be installed.

The angle is however usually between latitude plus 15 degrees and latitude minus 15 degrees depending on whether – dry or rainy season bias is desirable in the system.

Aside the solar panels, other components included in a solar power system include charge controllers, batteries and battery inverters.

Solar panels charge the batteries and the charge regulators ensure the proper charging of the batteries.

The batteries provide DC voltage to the inverters which now converts the DC to AC voltage.
