Sustainable energy transforming lives in rural villages


In the remote Kogi village of Nigeria, a remarkable transformation from ATESS has taken place, shedding light on the power of renewable energy solutions to uplift underserved communities.

Once grappling with daily power shortages and a lack of connection to the national grid, the village has now emerged as a shining example of sustainable energy innovation, thanks to a collaborative effort between the government’s Rural Electrification Agency and ATESS, a leading energy storage solutions provider.

Through the installation of a state-of-the-art mini-grid system, featuring a 200kWp (kilowatt-peak) PV system and ATESS’s cutting-edge energy storage solution, Kogi village has bid farewell to the reliance on small portable generators, embracing the promise of solar power as its primary energy source.

The ATESS system, comprising dual HPS100 hybrid inverters, a meticulously engineered DC cabinet, and a robust 500kWh (kilowatt-hour) battery system, now provides reliable and uninterrupted power to the villagers, transforming their daily lives.

“Gone are the days of darkness and uncertainty,” a resident of Kogi village said. “Now, we can power our homes, businesses, and schools with clean, sustainable energy – a true blessing for our community.”

Recognising the importance of long-term support, ATESS has also deployed dedicated after-sales personnel to the village, ensuring the smooth operation and maintenance of the renewable energy infrastructure.

The success story of Kogi village serves as a beacon of hope, showcasing the immense potential of renewable energy solutions in uplifting underserved communities. It’s a testament to what can be achieved when technology, vision, and community empowerment converge, paving the way for a more sustainable and inclusive future.
