Private Networks Nigeria Limited (PNN), a leading Pan-African technology service, has announced plans and ability to provide 100% visibility in Nigeria through the application of solar powered lights which can adequately address the persistent epileptic power supply in the country.

Speaking at a news conference in Lagos on Monday, PNN Head of Business Development Uche Anajemba said her company's decision to power the country through solar powered lights was spurred by non availability of constant power supply in most parts of the country where business activities are literarily grind to a halt during the better part of the day which also made it difficult for the citizens to move around at night.

She explained that for this reason, PNN has been involved in the development of solar power as a cheaper, more cost effective, reliable and durable alternative for the provision of street lights.

According to her: "Due to the non-availability of constant power supply for street lights and continue failings of various alternative street lighting products being deployed across Nigeria, PNN spent over 2 years in the research and development of a solar powered lighting technology that is cost effective, reliable and durable for keeping our streets lit at all times. We are lighting up Nigeria by deploying our unique solar street light to various places to ensure all our streets are well lit 100% of the time."

She said that solar powered street lights are a very good example of what can be done with solar energy as they present the perfect and cost-effective solution for metropolitan, urban and residential streets, car parking lots, security lights, and other general area lighting applications. PNN Solar street lighting solution can be economically viable and efficient in a number of applications, especially in areas where the cost of providing electricity is expensive or problematic".
