Ground Breaking in Nigeria to Create Reliable Clean Coal-Powered Electricity

The 60 MW power project, the first of its kind, will help broaden Nigeria’s energy mix

CHICAGO, October 31, 2017  Milhouse International is moving forward with plans to create coal-powered electricity in Nigeria. Milhouse’s efforts will reduce the country’s reliance on costly diesel fuel, increase opportunities for economic growth, and provide consistency and sustainability, improving quality of life for Nigerians. To celebrate the initiation of such a trailblazing development, Milhouse is hosting a groundbreaking on November 23, 2017 at the power plant site located on the campus of The University of Nigeria at Nsukka, Enugu, Nigeria.

 

We are extremely excited and motivated to begin work in Enugu, said President/CEO, Wilbur C. Milhouse, III. My goal for Milhouse has always been to improve communities around the world and that vision has finally come to fruition

 

As part of the groundbreaking activities, Milhouse will host its second annual soccer shoe giveaway in Nigeria.  A soccer shoe drive is currently underway through November 9, 2017. The collection of new and gently used soccer shoes will be contributed to the children of the Awhum local community in Enugu State, Nigeria.

 

In 2015, Milhouse signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Federal Republic of Nigeria and its Ministry of Power. This agreement solidified Milhouse’s initiative to generate coal-powered electricity. The 60 MW power plant will increase Nigeria’s capacity to produce sustainable, reliable, and affordable electricity to its customers. Due to the erratic nature of electricity delivery in Nigeria, consistent power for homes and businesses generally entails running a diesel generator as a primary power source which costs about three to four times higher than the typical American household. Many Nigerian consumers go without lights for days at a time.

 

By utilizing Nigeria’s natural resources we will provide its citizens with access to safe and reliable power at an affordable rate. Electricity usually accounts for more than 30% of costs for manufacturing businesses in Nigeria. Our efforts will provide relief by helping those businesses reduce their costs, and create jobs shared Wilbur Milhouse, III.

 

After several months, countless hours of planning, and many flights from Chicago to Nsukka, Milhouse is excited to finally break ground on this innovative project. Milhouse hopes to leverage this experience and continue to impact and improve other communities in need around the world.
