Power Supply Drops By 1047mw / GROUP IMPORTATION FOR POWER BANKS FOR RETAILERS AND USERS / Bridging The Nigeria Energy Divide With Alternative Energy Option (2) (3) (4)
|Any One With Alternative For Power Supply? by olabode247: 11:14am On Oct 23, 2006|
I want to go into online biz,but i have find it difficult,cuz of the epiliptic power supply of the country.I don't want to go for a Generator cuz of the smoke,noise.etc.
Can any1 here tell me or give me another alternative aside from generator?

Have you considered solar energy?
|Re: Any One With Alternative For Power Supply? by naijacutee(f): 2:31pm On Oct 23, 2006|
Hey, I was just going to say that! Funny enough I've recently been looking into alternatives to NEPA and I have discovered that one can easily power up a few basic tv items (Lights,TV, Fan radio ) using a solar generator. The thing is that I don't know how many nigerians would want to welcome this idea.

yeah I also think u shld go 4 solar energy it very cost effective on the long run and it enviromental friendly no air pollution, no noise pollution no more diesel buying, maintenance and all that comes with running a generator so solar energy it is and we got a lot of sun in niger!
|Re: Any One With Alternative For Power Supply? by olabode247: 9:49pm On Oct 24, 2006|
Thanx for ur response.i will like you to tell me the cost,where to get it and probably the features etc.
I mean elaborate more,cuz am really confuse here and don't know what to do.
hope to hear from you pretty soon.

Even if people refuse to welcome the idea,let's take the lead cuz something needs to be done since PHCN has failed us let us pass ourselves.
I strongly believe in something,thus, THERE IS ALWYS A WAY OUT!
Incase,you r able to make vital move,you can reach me via, email@example.com.
hope to hear from you pretty soon.

Go to computer village and search for an inverter. You can get an automatic inverter for as low as 25,000 naira and a manual one for as little as 14,000 naira. You can supplement this with a tiny generator. Cheers!

@seun pls how do the inverter u talked of work.i mean what appliances can it power.can it power a whole house.and how long does it last when charged.i ask this cos i would love to get one
|Re: Any One With Alternative For Power Supply? by Seun(m): 6:03pm On Jul 25, 2007|
An inverter can power a single computer for 4 hours if you buy a 100ah battery and charge it fully.
It can power a Centrino laptop all day if you have 5-7 hours of electricity every evening on the same battery.
Maybe it can power a whole house, but that is not very important since your primary concern is e-business.
|Re: Any One With Alternative For Power Supply? by ambjnr(m): 6:15pm On Jul 25, 2007|
@seun u mean i buy the inverter and also buy a battery too.pls how much will the two cost me.
and pls do u knw about any solar power that can power a whole house and its appliances cos i really need to do without generators
|Re: Any One With Alternative For Power Supply? by Seun(m): 6:25pm On Jul 25, 2007|
The cheapest way to generate electricity independently is to burn fuel.
Why do you think you need to do without generators? Tell me, so I can advice you.
|Re: Any One With Alternative For Power Supply? by ambjnr(m): 2:29pm On Jul 27, 2007|
@seun using generator is quite expensive considering the price of fuel in the mkt today.so thats why i want someting i can add to phcn electricity mainly to run my e business and if possible power my house.i normally have phcn light daily say 6 hrs
daily sometimes 10 and sometimes more.

It is one thing that you need power to run your laptop and printer and it is another thing that you need power to run your Deep freezer, iron and washing machine. See Solar is by far more expensive than Generator and if care is not taken "it does not do exactly what it says on the tin". I have tried solar in Nigeria and these were the problems i faced.
(1) You need a qualifed electrician to wire up the whole stuff accurately.
(2) The cost of the following far exceeded the cost of a generator that will supply the equivalent energy.
a) solar panel b) inverter c) energy storage battery. d) monitoring and cut flow device.
(3) Everyone claims we have abundant sunlight is that really through; the solar panel is not interested in
intesity but is interested in the U.V component of sun. So this means how long do we have exposure to
sunlight in Nigeria, it is typically 10.5hrs on a good day. In many other non equitorial regions it can reach up to
15hrs in some seasons.
That means we must have very good battery storage capacity. Which brings me to the last point ??
(4) Most of the energy is drainned out over night and before the solar recharges the batteries we are talking
about 10a.m the next morning this compounds the problem of depending on only solar for your energy
Conclusion: Is that Solar is an alternative when you remove investment costs, all though in the long term the fuel and maintenance costs of a generator will exceed the cost of a solar system but it will have to be[b] over a period[/b] of 2yrs.
Let me know if you have any Solar projects and i may be able to point you in the right direction.

Hello Olabode, I will suggest you get an INVERTER. This is perfect and that is what I have been using in my office for over 8 months now.
Depending on the capacity. The one I have in my office runs for 10 hours. About 8 laptops, 3 laser jet printers and a refrigerator etc.
For more information, call me on 08034002463 or email - firstname.lastname@example.org
|Re: Any One With Alternative For Power Supply? by Seun(m): 11:16pm On Aug 06, 2007|
If you buy a laptop, you will only need a 1000kva generator that costs about 15,000 naira and a 14,000 naira inverter of the same rating. You will also need a battery which I think is under 15,000 naira. Period!
|Re: Any One With Alternative For Power Supply? by Ojukwursg(m): 11:44pm On Aug 06, 2007|
I think he is right. Inverter is the way to go. The catch is that u'll still need electricity to charge the inverter, secondly the short term cost can very expensive. But in the long run, it will be good decisions.
