The Katsina State government and a Chinese energy company have signed a Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) to experiment a micro megawatt power model project across the state.
This was among the six MOUs signed by the government and some Chinese and Indian companies during a weeklong visit of the state government delegation led by Governor Aminu Masari.
Masari said this renewable energy supply model could generate up to one megawatt per business cluster that intends to supply electricity to specific industrial or business areas.
The Governor further said that this micro megawatt power model would ease electricity generation for small scale business owners that need energy to sustain production.
According to him, “We discussed also with a Chinese firm to establish an industrial park that would serve as a trade centre where different small and large scale investors would get market for their products.”
