Ceesolar Energy gets $395,000 grant for mini-grid power project in Niger Delta

All On, the Shell funded leading Nigerian impact investment company, announces a $395,000 grant awarded to Ceesolar Energy Limited, a renewable energy firm specialising in solar system design and construction, energy system deployment.

The move is in demonstration of its commitment to sustainable development and economic growth in the Niger Delta.

This marks the first beneficiary of the Niger Delta Grant program, a collaborative initiative designed to bridge the energy gap in the Niger Delta region.

The Niger Delta, despite its abundance of natural resources, faces significant energy access challenges. Recognising this disparity, All On established the Niger Delta Grant program to empower off-grid developers to bring clean, reliable power to underserved communities.

Ceesolar Energy Limited will utilise the grant to bring off-grid power to the Oweighoroha community in Bayelsa State. Their project will provide essential electricity for 430 connections, empowering residents with both social and productive-use applications.

“We are delighted to announce the grant to Ceesolar Energy,” said Caroline Eboumbou, All On’s Chief Executive Officer.
“This signing signifies our unwavering commitment, alongside Shell, to fostering a brighter future for the Niger Delta. This decision reflects Bayelsa’s critical importance to All on, which is determined to address the significant lack of access to commercial electrification opportunities that the communities have endured.

The Chief Executive Officer, Ceesolar Energy Limited, Chibueze Ekeh, said, “We are excited and honoured to be awarded this grant. At Ceesolar Energy we are passionate about reducing carbon footprints through sustainable energy impacts. The Niger Delta is a region that needs sustainable energy impact; hence, this grant is timely to provide the impact to 2,000 people in the Oweighoroha community through the provision of mini grids.”
