Egbin Power Plc, Nigeria’s largest power generating station, says it is introducing a clean energy initiative that will reduce carbon emissions and promote environmental sustainability.

Speaking on Tuesday during the launch of electric buggies and bicycles at its power station in Lagos, Temitope Shonubi, chairman of the board of directors of Egbin Power Plc, said it is important to protect the environment for the future by going electric.

He stated that the initiative will also promote healthier lifestyles and productivity.

“For us at the Sahara Group, we have always said we are bringing energy to life. And to do this, it is not just talking it, but making sure that we deliver. Today, Egbin has been picked as the first place we will commence the drive for sustainability and ensuring everybody stays alive and their quality of life is priceless,” Shonubi said.


“The value of the future in today’s world is far more appreciated than where we live in today. We are driven by ensuring that we are ambidextrous. We will live in the present, but we will plan and ensure that the environment is ready for the future.

“One thing I want you all to know is that environment is king. Where we live is who we are. What we do remains what is going to make a difference to what others will do. Every step we take makes a difference in life.

“A typical passenger vehicle emits about 4.6 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year and this is equivalent to an average of 0.0126 metric tons of carbon dioxide per day. Every walk-to-work and bike-to-work activity as well as riding on the electric buses within the facility prevents the emission of 3.78 metric tons per day of carbon dioxide from about 150 cars within Egbin and 1379.7 metric tons every year.


“The goal is to drastically reduce carbon emissions, for environmental sustainability, healthier lifestyles and productivity. The project involves promoting “going electric” and “clean energy” in Egbin.”
