Power in the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) may soon improve as the administration says it will encourage investment in portable power generation options using renewable energy to address epileptic power supply in the territory.

“A number of investors have come to us for investment in power sector,” FCT Minister, Mallam Mohammed Bello told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Friday.

“We are not interested in adding power to the national grid, but to create clusters of portable power generation options using renewable energy.

“For instance, if we get investors willing to power the University of Abuja with solar energy which the territory is endowed with, this will relieve the pressure on the national grid.

“The modular system can pay for itself and it is safe from carbon emission,” Bello said, reiterating the government’s resolve to put an end to poor electricity supply in the country.
