See also the article: Nigeria Launches Solar Electrification Project,, which states:

The event … marked the kick-off of a rural electrification project by the countrys Lagos State government that will provide solar installations to a total of nineteen villages previously without power … It costs about 150 million naira (around 1.2 million dollars) to connect each village to the national grid, while the solar energy project costs only about 10 million naira (around 83,000 dollars) per village. [Emphasis added].


In Nigeria, one of the very few African countries that does have oil, only one tenth of the oil is used by Nigerians (see the CIA World Fact Book:; and the profits from the exports go mainly to international oil companies and to politicians – only a very small percentage of it benefits the poor – see for example the World Banks 2002 report at, which states in paragraph number 29:

Moreover, the main beneficiaries of the oil sector are foreign oil companies and the Nigerian government. As yet, there has been very little direct impact of oil and gas production on the lives of Nigerias poor.


Also, there is an increasing amount of money being put into carbon capture and storage technologies that could potentially reduce CO2 emissions from coal fired power plants by 90%. This acknowledges the legitimate claims of developing countries to develop and the fact that fossil fuel will be important for this process. It also acknowledges that the implementation of purely renewable electricity systems is challenging.

Thus the film maker was either extraordinarily ill-informed, or else he set out intentionally to mislead the audience.]

[Cut to a clinic in the countryside]


A short drive out of Nairobi we find our first solar panel. A Kenyan public health official has brought us to a clinic which serves several villages. The only electrical implements in the clinic are the electric lights and a refrigerator in which to keep vaccines, medicine and blood samples. Electricity is provided by 2 solar panels.


So what can it do successfully?
