AN expert in renewable energy has advised both the Federal and state governments as well as private investors to embrace Hover Energy Turbines (HET) as an alternative source of electricity supply in the country.
Project Manager, German African Business Engineering Ltd., Mr Olufisayo Adeluola, who made this disclosure in Lagos, said HET, also known as wind energy system, is consumer and environmentally friendly and cheaper to maintain.
He said that the system could generate power through low wind-speeds in urban and rural areas; without generating environmental, technical and socio-economic risks that could be hazardous on its consumers.
Adeluola, added that should consumers embrace the system, it would transform the Nigerian power sector into a pragmatic way and minimized the risks usually associated with energy generation.
He said that due to the diverse technical challenges affecting the nation’s power sector, the wind energy solution would function well in both the urban and rural settlements without complex power transmission networks.
According to him, HET is a reliable source of energy without exposing its consumers to the risks of failures and can serve its consumers for as long as 30 years.
He added that what intending consumers of wind energy system would pay would be less than half the fraction of what consumers of conventional wind turbine-generated energy would pay for electricity consume.
