The ideology of our company is to connect local communities to potentials that might be existing in their own communities to meet their own needs. This is what we call: People to Potential to Power (P2P2P).

Our belief is that there is no community without access to any resource that can be used to meet their energy needs. These resources will range from water resources that can provide small hydro power solution to solar radiation that is abundant in many communities in Nigeria which can provide renewable energy as well as wind which, unknown to many, is one of the safest resource we can use to meet our energy needs. If there is movement of leaves on the trees in your area, it is an indication that you have wind energy potential.

Now is the time for the momentum: the technologies are becoming much cheaper than they used to cost and the regulatory framework is friendlier than it used to be. Galvanizing communities is much easier to achieve now because people are taking their own destiny into their hands. Anecdotal evidence is also supporting the hypothesis that the distribution companies are open to discussing ideas that can advance their interest in a win-win-win scenario. Grandstanding is no longer the vogue. Collaboration is viewed as the way forward for shared solution to problems. Finally, Nigeria has been reported to be the most sought-after country to foreign investors.
