    Energy Firm Donate Over 100 Solar Power Solutions to Yabatech

    Aiming at sustainable development and quality educational outputs, a United States (US)-based manufacturer of power stations, Bluetti, has donated  more than 100  solar power solutions to Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH), Lagos, to help the institution run on 24-hours electricity.

    Nigeria is one of the African countries where access to electricity is limited or nonexistent, and this has seriously affected the work and lives of its residents. However, solar energy has emerged as a solution to electricity challenges to cities and marginalized communities, enabling basic amenities such as lighting, refrigeration and communication.

    To this end, BlueTTI Power, an energy storage company that specializes in providing solar power solutions, including large-capacity power supply as well as power generator equipment that is designed to be used for various applications such as camping, outdoor activities and emergency situations, last weekend, donated 100 units of its solar home systems to students at the Yaba College of Technology, Lagos, through the TETFUND Centre of Excellence in Skills, Entrepreneurship, and Sustainable Development (TETCoE), Yaba College of Technology, Yaba, Lagos.

    This was done as part of the BlueTTI corporate social responsibility (CSR) project tagged “Lighting an African Family (LAAF).” The LAAF project is one of the company’s frameworks for Africa’s underprivileged households or individuals. It is a commitment to sustainable development that is working to bring power to every corner of the world, including students, intending to encourage their creative projects and research activities.

    The event took place in the college hall of the school with a large turnout of students in attendance. Among the school officials in attendance was Mr. Sherifudeen Ayodele Oja, director of the school’s TETfund Centre of Excellence in Skills Entrepreneurship and Sustainable Development, representing the acting rector, and student union government officers.

    Oja thanked the company for the initiative to empower the students. He explained that the BlueTTI vision was directly in line with the vision of the school’s TETCo, which is skills and sustainable development.

    “Out of the six TETFUND established across the six geopolitical zones in the country, Yabatech TETCo is one, and having a power solution company, BlueTTI, choose our school as their first point of call to benefit from their initiative, LAAF, is appreciated.

    “This donation will provide students with reliable and efficient power solutions to support their research and innovative projects. This is a positive step towards supporting sustainable development and innovation in Nigeria, and it’s in line with the vision of TETCo. This commitment should be undeniably recognised and backed by stakeholders in the education and technology sectors,” he said.

    A tech enthusiast and YouTuber, Mr. Adeyemi Joseph, enumerated the advantages of BlueTTI products, which include its lithium iron phosphate battery, which gives it a safe operation and longer lifespan; its multiport; and its anti-surge capacity.

    At the event, some students won solar systems and other gifts through the raffle. The donation included the Bluetti E40 Solar Home System, with a capacity of 40 Wh able to perform a variety of functions, including home lighting, outdoor charging and powering wireless routers.
