National Assembly mulls laws on development of grids
The National Assembly (NASS), has disclosed that it is working towards making laws that will aid the development of main and mini-grids to boost electricity supply in the country.
A grid is a network of wires and cables through which power, such as electricity is distributed.
Chairman, House Committee on Power, Magaji Aliyu, said this yesterday at the ongoing three-day International Conference on Energy, Power Systems Operations and Planning (ICEPSOP) 2020, in Abuja.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the conference with the theme, “Empowering Micro Grid with Smart Grid Attributes Development in U.S. and Africa,” is organised by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) in collaboration with Howard University and support from the U.S. National Science Foundation.
Aliyu said that the Federal Government had resolved to develop electric power in Nigeria, especially in rural areas.
