In relation to your question the cost of installing a solar panel,in Nigeria is very expensive,but there is this inverter i use and install,which gives me electricity without the solar panel,it charges and stores light when there is power supply and then supplies power,when NEPA/PHCN strikes.

In relation to your question the main reason is cost, Solar power in Africat relys mainly on aid. A system to power a 4 person household can cost around $15,000 USD. Have a look at the Perth solar web page http://www.bledisloeenergy.com.au their systems are top of the line however to power a 4 person house hold it would cost around $20,000 USD. Like Nigeria Perth has harsh sunlight wich degrades a solar panel over time. A $15k system may last 7 years in these conditions but a $20k german system will last 25+ years.

Hope this helps,

Best regards

Ekiti state would run at the mention of green energy all because huge amount was expended by past government with no positive result.

Solar panels produce perhaps 10 watts per square foot. So a roof section that is 15 x 30 could produce 4.5 kw midday. That's enough for the starting load on a refrigerator, and plenty for a running load of 1.2 kw.
