U.S.-based solar mini-grid developer Husk Power Systems has signed a deal to develop and operate systems that will offer around 5,000 electric connections across seven rural Nigerian communities.

The former start-up, which also offers biomass-solar systems which process rice farming waste, today announced it had signed a deal with Nigerian public body the Rural Electrification Agency (REA) to install seven solar-plus-storage mini-grids in the communities of Rukubi, Idada, Igbabo, Kiguna, Akura, Gidan Buba, and Sabon Gida
