They must be getting a lot of electricity to spend that low on diesel.

Exactly why the public electricity bill is that high.

That's a big lie! Someone or a group of thieves are pocketing huge sums of money!

If the school really wants to reduce power expenses, it should implement Solar!! The ₦82 million is probably more than enough to create a reliable, sustainable and cheap to maintain solar grid to power the whole the school!



A big lie without showing any evidence. I know buildings paying as much as 20million naira per month.

Big Malls pay above 30m per month.

Now we are talking about OAU campus with thousands of AC units, sewage and water treatment plants, student hostels housing thousands of students using hotplates and pressing irons and a lot of staff residential quarters. And people have even stated here that they have about 70-80% availability.

Offices that have their own transformer and have 70-80% availability, do you have an idea of how much they pay monthly? Find out pls. Then extrapolate their size to OAU's.

To set up a solar power system that can comfortably carry just one (1) 2HP AC, you'll be spending more than a million naira. Even with the advantage of economy of scale, the amount you mentioned cannot set up a solar power system for the power requirements of a big campus like OAU.

Btw, 80million naira is just 195,000 dollars.

2 million on Diesel? That is not true! In fact I spends more than 1 million on Diesel every month let alone a whole OAU, beside the OAU i know does not have stable electricity so this news is fake
OAU should be spending nothing less than 100 million on diesel every month

Dont mind that poster he doesn’t know anything
2 billion Naira solar project can not power OAU
INFACT SOlar is the most expensive source of electricity in Africa where solar Panel and batteries are too expensive
The worse is you have to replace the battery every 2 years and that would cost you another 80% of the amount you bought it

50m will install 1000pcs of 300w solar panels making it 300kw of power production daily then run generator at night while saving 100m for wet batteries. In conclusion, 150m will give them 24hrs power everyday for the next 20yrs. Every year this school produces EE graduates yet pay this huge amount for power. Now, aiming 1mw of electricity is about half a billion. Why would they spend over a billion yearly on electricity. My brothers It is Biafra/oduduwa or nothing..no hope in UAR

Is the power requirements of OAU 300KW?

The Rural Electrification Agency (REA) 8.03MW power project for the supply of electricity to the University is on-going and almost completed.

Even though the above may be overdimensioned to account for expansion and possibly supply to neighbouring communities, OAU power consumption can never be as meagre as 300KW.

300KW is roughly 375KVA.

So you are saying a 375KVA gen can power the whole campus of OAU? grin This is a joke right?


Then also tell me what you mean by 20yrs lifespan. The batteries included? Smh

Assuming OAU has a student population of 20,000, and half reside on campus.
That's 10,000 users of power daily in the hostels.

5 days a week, the 20,000 use power during lectures.

The staff quarters houses lecturers and their families, let's say another 5,000 people daily.

Then there are street lights and other none academic buildings that use power daily.

If you add it up and multiply the users/day by NERC price per Kw for the price band a University falls under, then you will see the N80m is plausible.

Thank you.

PVision2020:

Do you think OAU is your 2 bedroom flat that will be powered by 300KW solar...lol. OAU is like a local government, with several transformers. You have the teaching Hospital, staff Quarters, Lecture theatres, Staff schools, religious buildings, OAU Dam (as the school generates it's own water supply), several research institutes, Student hostels, Factories, Markets, Offices, etc. OAU is One of the largest campuses in Nigeria and Africa. And the power supply on campus is almost 24/7, this is obvious from the little amount they spend on deisel. There was no interrupt of supply throughout my first semester on campus. That 300KW will be consumed by just one block in Awo hall of residence.

Thank God we have thinking guys like you.

The OAU you know is fake then if it does not have constant power supply.. Power supply here is 24/7. So I don't know the OAU you're talking about.

Re: OAU Spends N80m On Electricity & N2m On Diesel Every Month by Abc2Z: 10:03am On Jun 10
The man is right. The campus is metered and it is being read for billing so there is no way he can collect more than the amount billed. Also we know student will always use electrical appliances that consumes power and judging by the size of the school, it's very possible. Afe Babalola University is paying more than 20million, this is a school where the student are not using electric cooker o.

So the 80m claim might be right. Although we can't trust ourselves in Nigeria

You can see why Govt doesn't care for education systems and they always go strike. Educational sector seems to be non productive and just spending huge money to run itself. All the graduates produced, not one has ever gone back to make the University able to run itself.
hmmm nawa oooo... privatization of these tertiary institutions will be the best but what of the poor that wouldn't be able to afford it...coz it's glaring that government is giving too little concern to educational sector...this is what happens when we have President that doesn't pass through school... so he is less concerned coz is not attending university that made him a President today...

I have been trying to decode the billing.

A month is = 30days~

So therefore;
Cut out NEPA entirely.

Spend at max 1,000,000N on diesel for each day.
Which is = 1,000,000 x 30 days
= 30,000,000+/-

Do you know how much is 80M?

NB: maintenance is another separate bill.

That is it.
To be a big man in Nigeria is by gun & gra-gra, anyhow behaviour.
The only time it can begin to work is if graduates and other educated people can develop systems that will provide:
1. Security (without this one nothing can work)
2. Water, food, shelter and power...
3. Production company, making anything exportable for Nigeria's GDP and $$$ foreign exchange.
- It can be food, or technology.
--
In America, they first started by everybody carrying guns. Nobody can try any nonsense. I blow your head.
Once everybody understood that one, all forms of madness cooled down.
Graduates can only perform when everywhere is cool.
As long as everywhere is upside-down, graduates cannot arrange it properly and perform.
--
In the absence of that, Buhari and leaders will never be interested in Education and will keep cutting lecturers' salaries.
Universities will just be suffering and lecturers complaining every year.
I graduated 2002, na before my time, dem don dey complain, till now, for more than 30 years.

Nigeria is not giving it out, it's an agreement.

River Niger passes through Benin and Niger Republic before reaching Nigeria.

If one or both countries Dam the river, then Kanji dam will become useless.

So, Nigeria went into an agreement with them to supply them electricity, and in return, they won't Dam river Niger.

If you had read well, you will see @ aiming 1mw for half a billion in my write up. Now, tell me what are they consuming to be requesting for 8.03mw. What are they producing, If not consumption only? Consuming 8mw without producing anything is a waste of energy. They should not use more than 1mw of electricity. However, if they must use 8mw, why will they pay 1B Naira a yr. Australia built 50mw of solar power with $20m. Who is deceiving who? Well, Australia is Australia and UAR is UAR

Truly, light na 24/7 for inside campus.
The campus night life is top notch but spending that much na lori iro[/quote]

It's actually possible, but he didn't break it down that OAU has a powerhouse where people with shops on campus pay and also those who stay in quarters also make make payments to buy units of electricity....everything is metered. So to guess they make a huge chunk of the money already from commercializing it. There's the Buka, the new market, those that make photocopies in academics, those that stay in quarters, maintenance hostel etc. So it's not like the whole 80m is actually sourced for from the University's purse. I don't know the status of things on campus now but for the generators, they only power the Senate building back then and the street lights. Don't know about now.
