Abstract

Access to electricity is a major challenge in Nigeria with adverse effects on residents and businesses. To improve the poor state of electricity, the government introduced several policies to enhance the use of renewable energy in addition to existing conventional energy resources. However, the use of renewable energy has been relatively low in Nigeria. This can be attributed to several factors such as inconsistency in renewable energy targets, non-implementation of policies and lack of political will. In order to address this, the use of incentives as in the case of Texas is proposed for Nigeria.
