Seun: Solar energy is not yet cost-effective. In most places where it's thriving, this is because its supported by government subsidies. A time will come when solar will be competitive with fossil fuels, but even at that time, it will not be the "easiest way to get rich". So beware!

And in your analysis, you seem to have omitted the small fact that in all of the countries where Solar Power is thriving, they receive 24 hours of uninterrupted power from the grid, most of which are in Northern Europe and don't receive anywhere near the same level of Peak Sunlight that Nigeria does. So, the government needs to offer generous incentives to make it worthwhile for households to purchase. The economics in Nigeria are entirely different, as we are dealing with a country that is only able to produce 5,000MW of power each year, against a demand of 60,000MW. That's a pathetic 8% of total energy demand, and this shortfall is filled by the use of petrol and diesel generators, singularly the most expensive way of generating electricity. It costs Nigerian homes and businesses a total of $50bn per annum to produce 55,000MW of energy each year through the use of generators.

UTTER MADNESS.

So, no government subsidies are necessary - the payback period of Solar Power Investment in Nigeria is CONSIDERABLY shorter than in any other country in the world. FACT.

It is the single best investment any Nigerian business or household can make. And this is despite the fact that fuel is still heavily subsidised in Nigeria, and WHEN (not if) the remaining subsidy is removed later this year, this will result in an immediate 50% increase in the cost of running a generator.

Not true. Not true at all. Solar is now significantly cheaper than diesel generators, as prices have fallen by 75% in the last 4 years. The prices are continuing to fall, and are now expected to shortly be cheaper than coal, the cheapest form of electricity currently available. In fact, this year, new technology has been developed that will reduce the cost of Solar below coal. See the article below.

http://tribune.com.pk/story/468215/energy-crisis-solar-power-is-now-cheaper-than-diesel-generators/

http://grist.org/business-technology/solar-power-cheaper-than-coal-one-company-says-its-cracked-the-code/

We really must stop labouring under the misinformation that Solar is expensive. That was true 3 or 4 years ago. It's not now. The market has moved so dramatically in the last 2 years that the economics are now in "no brainer" territory.

Every Nigerian home and business should be switching to Solar Power now. It's the only viable short term solution to our energy crisis.

Finally, tell me how easy it is to sell something to businesses that's guaranteed, at current prices, to have a payback period of 4 months. That's a 300% return on investment per annum. Show me another investment anywhere in the world that can boast those returns. Or where the average family is GUARANTEED to save N2.5m every 5 years by switching to Solar energy. These are matters of fact, and are easily verified.

Next, factor in that we are talking about a $2.5tn market, and if a person cannot get rich selling such a product, then it is impossible to get rich. I can think of no easier product to sell, within such an enormous and untapped market, anywhere in the world.

Let me assure you that such a situation could never be possible in the Uk where I live. The market would have been saturated decades ago, and the gap filled. And yet, it lies gaping in Nigeria, as people blindly continue to literally pour their money down the drain of diesel generators.

Knowledge is power, and I'm doing my bit to educate the masses.

Here is a great article about the potential for solar power in Nigeria.

http://sweetcrudereports.com/2012/12/25/solar-energy-for-sustainable-power-supply-in-nigeria/

It's very enlightening.

tunji2003: Barcholder did you consider climatic changes as regards deploying the solar systems or how does the varying weather affects the system considering places like lagos where there is too much rainfall.

Great question. The answer is yes. The efficiency of Solar Power is directly related to the prevailing weather conditions. In the most basic terms, this is determined by the amount of "Peak Sunlight Hours" received in a specific locations. This is what makes Nigeria so perfectly suited for solar power utilisation. Across Nigeria, peak sunlight hours range from 4 in the South to 9 in the north. Lagos has an average rating of 4.5 Peak sunlight hours per day (ranging between 4 & 5 depending on the time of year).

This is a very important statistic because it directly affects the amount of energy a PV Panel array can generate each day. To calculate the amount of energy created each day, simply multiply the Power rating of your Solar panel array by the number of peak sunlight hours. For example, our standard 2KW PV system will generate between 8KWH and 10KWH per day in Lagos. In the north of the country, this will be higher, at between 10KWH and 12KWH's. The current information available about energy usage per grid connected household in Nigeria shows that the average is 1.5KWH's per day. This compares to 12KWH's in the UK.

However, this data by itself can be misleading, as it does not account for the fact that most Nigerian homes do not receive 24 hours of electricity. To get a more realistic 24 hour energy consumption level, you'd need to multiply the given value by a factor of 4 to 5 (this assumes that the average NIgerian home receives between 4.8 and 6 hours of electricity per day, including generator usage. This number airs on the side of caution, as a recent report by Renaissance Capital puts this number at 7.5 hours of electricity). So, using my very prudent estimates, the average Lagos home will consume between 6KWH and 8KWH if they had 24 hours electricity. So you can see that a 2KW Solar Power System will produce sufficient energy to power the average home in Lagos. And you will note that is completely discounts the fact that grid electricity is actually available for a few hours each day. So in real terms, 2KW is more than sufficient to cover the electricity needs of the average home.

isaactolu: I will suggest if u can supply smaller units (upgradable ofcourse) dt can power energy saving bulbs, tv set nd fan and wnt cost more than 200k nd also u provide d 20% payment option, then u can then fully solve electricity problem in nig thereby u get enormous profit.

Very interesting suggestion, and great market research feedback. This is something we can certainly provide, and have all the facilities in place to do so, both from a supply and financing perspective. Our marketing process will essentially target to particular demographics - Middle to upper class Nigerians able to afford our full 24 hour solutions, and lower income Nigerians only able to afford to upgrade to full energy independence on a smaller basis.

Full details will be provided on our website which goes live in the next week or so. Every Naira less spend on generators and diesel fuel represents progress for our country. I dream of seeing the day when Nigeria is able to compete with more developed countries economically, and central to that dream is solving the energy crisis.

chi-ste:


I must say you did your research properly,but I would need some clarifications for potential marketers:
1. Are you seeking for free-lance marketers or to employ marketers as permanent staff within your company?
2. If you are seeking for freelance marketers, what is the guarantee for the commission payment on any sale?
3. As freelance marketers, are we permitted to work from home on leads and report to your office location when the need for vital documents arises?

Thanks.

You raise some excellent points, and I'll answer as follows:

1. I'm currently looking to recruit freelance marketers as opposed to permanent sales staff. The reasons are two-fold. First, as I'm new to the workings and procedures of doing business in Lagos (I'm London based and have only done business extensively in the UK and USA), the most optimal strategy is to use freelancers, allowing the company to begin generating sales revenues immediately. This provides me with the time to get to know the on ground conditions from the viewpoint of working culture, tax and regulatory requirements etc, all of which can often slow down the process of making sales. Secondly, although it would be very much cheaper for the company to hire sales staff directly, I prefer the freelance model as not only does it allow the workers to earn considerably more money, but it also guarantees high performance levels from motivated salespeople. I dare say very few jobs in Nigeria today offer the very real potential of earning N1m a month, and provides a tremendous incentive to the sales team to really get out there and shift product. Additionally, because of the efficient financing structure we have put in place, there is literally no limit to the number of units we can sell straight away, as all are guaranteed by the bank. So, in order to very quickly seize the market and become a major force, I'd need to be able to deploy a large team of salespeople to span the whole of Lagos, creating significant brand awareness (as well as considerable sales volumes) in the process. Adopting a freelance model is the most optimum strategy for doing this.

2. All Freelancers will be required to sign legally binding contracts with the company, which clearly states the roles and responsibilities of each party. Central to this is of course the payment process, frequency of payment etc. We will be initiating a well oiled sales process, in which every agent has full visibility of their number of sales, monies due etc. We will utilise a cloud based CRM system, which all Agents will have login access to. There, they are able to track their leads, sales, payments due etc. The payment process will be very clearly structured and implemented, with transparency and openness being at the heart of all we do.

Please bear the following in mind - failure to make prompt payments on the part of the company is akin to committing business suicide. Nothing destroys a company more quickly than failure to honour its commitment to its workers. Rest assured, it will our absolute pleasure to pay you every penny that is owed to you, in a prompt manner. Our cost structure is entirely variable, meaning that the more we pay you, the more revenue we are generating. The commission payments due to Agents have already been factored into our cost per unit calculations, and selling price. And in order to maximise our profits, we need to increase our sales. And the only way to increase our sales is to heavily incentivise the most important people in the business - the revenue generators.

Please rest assured, there is zero chance of payments not being honoured. I fully understand why you have asked the question, given the unfortunate reputation of Nigerians. But remember, I come from a different culture where we are used to doing things in a professional and structured way. The market size for Solar Energy in Nigeria is so huge that we want to penetrate it as quickly as possible, whilst competition is still thin on the ground.

3. Your description is spot on. Freelancers will be permitted to work from home and follow up leads, close sales etc. Once a week, a meeting will be held at our offices to discuss previous week's performance, targets etc. All vital documents (our marketing materials, namely glossy brochures, leaflets), and the requisite bank forms etc will be collected from the office as well. I believe this approach is the most optimal, as it gives the Agents the freedom to pursue their sales and leads (whilst of course adhering to the strict codes of conduct as stipulated by the company), but at the same time allows for the fostering of a great team spirit, which is conducive to great sales performance.

A couple of further points to note. Within a few months of operations, we will be seeking to employ a couple of permanent area managers, who will be put in charge of co-ordinating the freelancers on a permanent basis. These roles will be very well remunerated, as befits their level of responsibility. As well as a generous basic, company car etc, the incumbents will also earn a commission based on every sale made by the freelancers they directly manage. The revenue earning potential for these roles will be enormous, as I'm sure you have very quickly figured out. The best performing Freelancers after a few months will be promoted into these roles.

It's also important to note that Freelancers will not be left solely responsible for generating all their own leads. We will continually be marketing and generating leads internally, which will result in appointment bookings being made on our website. Sales people will be allocated these bookings, in order to visit the customers and close out the sales. Commissions will be paid as normal. We will be executing an ongoing and comprehensive marketing program, including SMS Marketing, referral Marketing, Social Media Marketing, Targeted leafletting, Pay Per Click advertising and SEO.

I believe that given the size of Nigeria, this represents the best structure to enable cross country expansion, and efficient scalability.

Uvie

jasper7: so.. what is the price of one unit of the solar thingy. cos that would determine if Nigerians would embrace it

First of all, you must define "everyone". By definition, everyone in Nigeria cannot yet embrace it because 50% of the country live in rural areas and earn an average of $2 a day. They are not even yet connected to the grid. See my point above about market segmentation.

To specifically answer your question, the cheapest complete system we sell, that's capable of providing 24 hours consistent electricity needs is the 2KW system. This is priced at N1,300,000, which, I can assure you, is just about the cheapest price anywhere in the world for an equivalent system. Of course, I'm well aware that the upfront cost is more than a large proportion of Nigerians can afford, which is why we have negotiated financing terms to enable more people to afford it. So, this represents a good entry price for the typical Middle Class household in Lagos. With a 20% down payment, the monthly repayments are below the average N60,000 average spent on diesel each month. And after 2 years, repayments stop. Forever. The panels are guaranteed for 25 years.

The cost of the system is so much more than just the panels. It includes the following:

1. 8 250W Mono-crystalline PV Panels

2. 2.5KVA Hybrid Controller Inverter ( these can be upgraded to up to a 5KVA inverter, to allow for later additional panels to be added, for example, if you wish to run your a/c)

3. 4 * 12V 260AH Deep Cycle Batteries

4 Roof Brackets, to secure panels to the roof of the house

5 Wiring as required.

6. Complete Installation of the system

7. 5 Year warranty on the PV panels

8 2 Year warranty on the Inverters

9. Full 24 month maintenance for free (they need little to no maintenance, but we offer this as additional reassurance to customers)

10. As a bonus, we provide complete set of energy efficient lightbulbs for your home, for FREE. These significantly reduce your energy consumption, saving you the need to upgrade to one of our more powerful systems. And they last 7 times as long as traditional light bulbs.

For anybody who currently spends at least N40,000 a month on diesel, engine oil, and maintenance combined for their generator, this package is an absolute "no brainer". Over a 5 year period, you will save at least N2m. Over the lifetime of the guarantee (25 years), and even factoring for battery replacement costs approximately every 5 years, the average Nigerian household will save over N10m. This is a genuine and real saving.

I understand that despite the superb value of this 2KW system (we of course have larger systems up to 5KW and 7.5KVA inverter), it still won't be affordable for a lot of people. So, we have created a bespoke package system, where you are able to buy a smaller capacity of system and gradually built it up over time to eventually achieve complete electricity independence. The prices for this start from as low as N400,000, and will be discussed with our Consultant during the home visit, where they are able to advise you on the best and most efficient structure, based on your budget.

The important thing is, our mission is to go some way towards delivering energy independence for Nigerians, because this is the only way the country can achieve it's full, untapped potential. We of course want to make money as well (that's the point of business), but our primary driver is integrity, and a sense of mission for the greater good. By delivering a level of service that exceeds expectations, we create brand loyalty, and ultimately make loads more cash. Our objective is to float on the Nigerian Stock Exchange within 5 years, giving us the enormous capital base to attack the bottom 50% market, and bringing energy to all.

Chizin: Well said, but I must set things right here before commenting more; you know many companies, infact uncountable companies have emerged earlier claiming that they are capable of running this project, but on the long run, they will collect money from the poor masses knowing fully well what they are rendering is not working perfectly and went into tin air. Well, am much interested, more info should be directed to me at; chizin247@gmail.com

You are absolutely right, and I'm very pleased that you have raised this point. I have read through so many historic threads on NL and seen lots of companies claiming to be able to solve this problem. And I am able to spot very quickly that it's absolute nonsense. Rest assured, my company is fully able to achieve it's objectives. Why? Because we have sorted out by far the most important aspect of the problem - the financing of our operations. We have finalised exclusive tie in's with a major Nigerian Bank (I won't mention their name, but they have a huge building in Victoria Island amongst other places). This provides us with the capital to be able to meet the volume of orders that we will take (and I anticipate it will be huge).

There simply is no other way of cracking this market. The barriers to entry are huge, and no small company will be able to do it without significant financial support. My background is in Financial Services, and was formerly the CEO of HSBC's Project & Export Finance business in London. I have many contacts in the industry, so was able to secure the financing facilities required. We have structured the deals as to de-risk the proposition for the bank as much as possible.

So, here's a tip for you, as a way to quickly work out whether the companies that claim to have the capacity to deliver are actually able to do so. Simply ask them to describe their financing arrangements, such that it allows them to meet the cost of any number of orders. Ask them how they are able to fund their stock purchasing, shipping costs, and working capital requirements? If they give you half baked answers, just know they are full of crap. Because the truth is, in order to deliver, it is ESSENTIAL that you have powerful financial backing, otherwise it's impossible to fund stock purchases, pay for quality marketing, have a trained installation team, and run a comprehensive sales network.

That Nigeria is the biggest potential market for solar power in the world is not a secret - it's been reported on extensively over the last few years (a simple google search will yield lots of articles discussing the very thing). However, the real challenge in breaking the market is not whether or not there will be demand, because that's a given. It's whether you are able so implement a comprehensive execution strategy that enables you to scale your operations efficiently. That involves in depth market segmentation analysis, and executing a Go To Market Strategy that optimised your market meeting capabilities.

This is what we have done, and we'll be making our market entrance in Lagos next month. Our website goes live in the next week or so, and further communications will follow from then.

Peddylove: CAN A GRADUATE WITHOUT A SALES OR MARKETING BACKGROUND APPLY? IS THERE PROVISION 2 TRAIN D AGENT? WHERE IN LAGOS IS D COY SITUATED?

Yes, a graduate without sales or marketing background can indeed apply. Given the nature of the product and the sales process involved, you don't necessarily need to have specific sales experience to do a good job.

However, it's critical to be possessed of great communication skills, an impecable command of language, and most importantly, a level of intelligence that allows you to be able to explain very clearly and succinctly to customers, the benefits of the systems to them. To do this, you will need to be able to absorb relatively complicated information and be able to disseminate it to a layperson in simple terms. It's for this reason that I'm seeking graduates for the position.

I hope I've been able to answer your question satisfactorily. Feel free to get back to me if you require further information.

ebamma: Garri right?
Lol. No. Solar Power Systems. The single most important technology for Nigeria's immediate future.

Nigerian residents spend $25bn a year on generators and its associated diesel fuel, due to our epileptic power grid. This is without doubt the biggest waste of money in any economy anywhere in the world. Here is a shocking fact for you. Do you know that the average bank branch in Nigeria today spends an average of N4m a month on diesel for their generators. And guess what the one time cost of installing a Solar Power System capable of providing 24 hours electricity is to them?

N20m. That's right. A payback period of 5 months. Only in Nigeria can such madness ensue.

So, you want to know the easiest way to get rich in Nigeria is today? Become a self employed sales person selling solar power solutions to residents and businesses in the country. This is literally a $500bn market, and its totally untapped.

I'm about to launch a solar distribution and installation company in Nigeria, and have secured exclusive financing facilities from a major Nigerian bank, to enable customers and businesses to get loans to purchase them. Any person who believes they are a good sales person, and is willing to work hard, will earn commissions of up to N45,000 per sale they made. I would expect a good salesperson to be selling 5 units a week. All marketing materials etc is provided. Just show up dressed smartly and do your thing. And get paid.

And save our country in the process. Try to imagine the impact on the economy and jobs if that $25bn a year currently being flushed down the toilet was instead spent in the wider economy. Just imagine the possibilities.

It is for this reason, that I'm returning from London where I've been for the last 25 years to get this done. Our country can be one of the top 10 economies in the world. But we must solve the power crisis first.

is to sell a product that is NEEDED by everybody, both consumers and businesses. A product that is rapidly expanding in popularity in use around the world, where the benefits of using it are nowhere near as high as in Nigeria.

A product that completely solves the single biggest problem faced by Nigeria today, and yet is still relatively unknown by most Nigerians.

A product that has reduced so much in price over the last couple of years, that it's now affordable for at least 35% of all Nigerian households, and 60% of all Nigerian businesses.

Can you guess what that product is?

Thank you

Dear sir

Do you not think I'm well aware of the fact that people will check up on the website linked to the email address I have provided? I'm the founder of that website and it is being used as the tool so filter and sort through the applicants for the job.

Some facts for you, seeing as you are clearly sceptical.

1. My website will shortly be going out live, and I will be certain to provide you with the address. I have deliberately not provided the web address as it's currently under construction. Rest assured, it will be live in the next week or so, and I'll be publishing full details accordingly.

2. Our office will be based in Victoria Island. We are currently finalising lease details with the office provider Regus, for use of one of their prime properties. All details will be provided on our website once it's live.

3. We are actively recruiting for Sales Agents to meet the demand levels expected for our products.

4. We have already taken over 20 pre-orders from businesses.

5. Our supply chain is finalised, and we have direct relationships with one of the largest Solar manufacturers in China. First shipments will take place in the next few weeks.

6. Our installation teams have already been trained and are ready to go.

7. Most importantly, our consumer financing packages have been approved and set up by a major Nigerian (and African wide) bank. We are very well capitalised and backed financially.

I certainly understand your initial level of scepticism, given the unfortunate reputation of Nigerians. Let me reassure you that this is real. And it's happening. Our marketing presence will be felt on the ground in the next few weeks, in Lagos.

Please feel free to check me out in order to satisfy your scepticism. I'm the founder and CEO of Urecruitme.co.uk, and you will see these details displayed in my LinkedIn profile. I have not yet updated my profile for the Solar Distribution company, as the website is yet to be completed, and final details are being ironed out. This will be done in the next couple of weeks, and I'll be sure to refer you to it. We also have a US presence, www.urecruitme.com. If you visit the website, you will see on the home page, a link to a US television NBC news interview with me.

This has nothing to do with being on top, as you allude to. We are trying to alleviate the chronic electricity problems faced by all Nigerians, and have packages that, given our generous financing terms, are affordable by a large number of Nigerians.

If you can afford to spend at least N40,000 a month on diesel fuel, you can certainly afford one of our systems, and get 24 hours of electricity in the process.
Satellite TV Technology / Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by Barcholder: 10:42pm On Mar 17, 2013
Hi

We are a UK based company who will shortly be selling and installing Solar Power systems into Nigerian homes. We are able to offer financing for all qualifying customers. The selling price of our 2KW system will start at N1.3m, and will be capable of providing 24 hour electricity generation to all grid connected homes.

We are looking for a large team of sales agents in Lagos to sell to customers, who will be paid on a commission basis for each sale they generate.

234GT: I hope this is not a scam. By the way, do you have solar power systems that can power a branch of a commercial bank with over 40 computer systems lights and about seven industrial air conditioners? Please reply.

This is certainly not a scam. The Solar Industry is growing rapidly around the world, with the world leaders, Germany, accounting for as much as a third of their entire energy output. In Australia, over 10% (8 million) of all households now own Solar Power Systems, and the market continues to grow rapidly.

In Nigeria, a country in which the economics of converting to Solar are more compelling than any other in the world, due to:

1. The incredibly high costs of electricity as a result of continued reliance on diesel generators (conservatively, households alone are estimated to spend N3.5tn a year on purchasing generators and diesel for their homes, excluding maintenance costs)

2. The abundance of sunlight across the country

there has been next to no penetration of Solar Power. This has largely been due to the lack of knowledge, and the high initial costs of installation.

There has been a significant reduction in the cost of Solar Panels in the last 2 years, to the point where it is now extremely affordable for the majority of businesses and households in Nigeria. Our company, Solynta Ltd is poised to be at the forefront of this enormous growth market, and with the financing solutions we have negotiated with a major bank, are able to make solar energy a reality for most homes and businesses, and eliminate the reliance of diesel generators, and it's extreme costs.

In direct response to your question, yes, we are indeed able to provide a solar power system capable of powering a bank branch, replete with all the equipment you describe. Our Solar Power Solutions range from small homes to large factories. Research indicates that the average bank branch in Nigeria spends approximately N4m a month on diesel for their generators. It goes without saying that a Solar Power Solution will significantly improve the profitability of the business.

Our website is currently under construction, and will be live in the next couple of weeks. I will post details as soon at it's live. In the meantime, if you require any additional information, or would like to arrange an initial free consultation, in order to calculate the specific Solar Power System required for your commercial premises, and the cost, please feel free to contact me.

Jobs/Vacancies / What's The Best Way To Recruit Graduates by Barcholder: 1:18pm On Mar 12, 2013
Hi All

What's the best way to reach and recruit young hungry unemployed graduates in Lagos? We are looking to recruit a large team of 100 people to be able to sell our product in the market.

We are a UK based company with large operations across Europe. We are bringing Solar Power Systems to Nigeria in a big way, and have just agreed a 100% financing deal with a major bank, so buyers will get a loan from the bank to purchase the system as long as they meet their lending criteria. Our systems guarantee 24 hours electricity for each home, and cost approximately N1.3m - N1.5m.

We will pay extremely generous commissions for each sale made. N20,000 per sale, plus an additional 20% bonus for meeting targets. I imagine that a good sales person will be able to make 3-5 sales each week, and will therefore make at least N240k per month.

Can anybody who either knows how to reach graduates, or indeed is interested in working for us please reply.

Business / Re: Must You Really Start Your Own Business? by Barcholder: 4:35pm On Mar 10, 2013
ppanther: Considering the risks involved in owning a business,
is this option a must for everyone?

In view of the rising unemployment, it seems easy to
suggest to people to avoid the labour market
and just "start your own business".

How feasible is this option?

Let's discuss this.

I actually understand where you are coming from. There are many ways of making a lot of money without necessarily starting your own business. One of the best ways is to become a sales agent to sell a company's products. This way, you get to retain your independence and control over your destiny, whilst also being able to determine your own earning potential.

We are currently recruiting for Independent Sales Agents to sell our Solar Power Systems into the Lagos residential market. We have negotiated a consumer financing package with one of the major banks in Victoria Island, so consumers are able to purchase the systems with little or no upfront deposit.

We are paying very generous commissions of N17,500 a sale, and given the anticipated level of demand as a result of our financing package, it should be very easy to generate 10 sales a week.

Please see my other thread for full details. We are London based, and will be in Lagos conducting interviews at the end of the month
