Electricity in Nigeria has remained in an epileptic state despite various government interventions to change the narrative. Megawatts generation has remained turbulent, fluctuating almost every fortnight.
The poor power situation in Nigeria has contributed to the death of many start-up firms and small and medium scale enterprises (SMEs).
This challenging situation has worsened the business terrain. Reports have it that many business organisations have left the country owing to the epileptic power situation.
The power supply in Nigeria is characterised by chronic power supply outage as a result of the supply of energy failure to match the demand for energy. The poor state of power supply has affected the household and industries in varying degrees.
The Association of Telecommunications Companies of Nigeria (ATCON), claimed that the power challenge in the country has contributed significantly to the drop in its membership.
Indeed, the constant power outages have left Nigerians emotionally traumatised and induced cost escalation on their businesses.
The poor energy supply to meet the domestic demand has led most policy makers to suggest that government should look beyond the conventional energy supply that is depletable to renewable energy.
Experts believe the development of renewable energy could help change the narrative, if there are actionable policies and strategies.
They also called for public private partnership strategies to boost innovations that would, most importantly, enable operators, especially SMEs to grow.
As such, to salvage the situation relatively, Simba Industries launched KStar UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply), a technology that can aid business growth and enhance continuity providing a power backup solution that is capable of managing essential electrical equipment including hospital diagnostic and surgical apparatus, data centers and bank ATMs.
