The Challenge

Nigeria generates just about 4,000 mega watts of electricity which is grossly insufficient to meet the demands of its population of approximately 173 million people. Consequently, most Nigerians have to depend on alternative sources of power to generate electricity to their homes and businesses because the country’s grid power has failed woefully to meet the public’s demand.

A unique challenge for all businesses in Nigeria, is unreliable power supply and the need to continue to run an organization efficiently, is core to the existence of a business.

As part of the plan to commence business operations in 2013, Pawakad identified that it would spend too much money on diesel to power its generator if it relied on the grid and generator alone for operation, and this would not make sound financial sense; As such, they decided to consult Juststandout limited for an audit and subsequently to provide the required solution.

 

The company required a solution that would provide uninterrupted power supply for continuous business operation.

The Juststandout Solution

After the initial consultation, Juststandout did an audit of the company’s site and calculated the critical load the company required for the backup solution. We provided a 2,400W system with a 4 Battery solution with the principal goal of powering the company’s critical load. The solution consisted of a JS02424 inverter charger, 4 batteries, battery rack, breakers, stabilizer, and changeover, bus bar and other accessories.

The Juststandout batteries were the 200ah batteries that run up to 1700 cycles at 30% discharge and backup critical loads for a minimum of 10hrs in the event of a power outage. Installation was done during the weekend to minimize disruption to normal business operation; the installation took 1 day to complete and the client was advised to charge the batteries for at least 12hours before first use.

 

Outcome

The solution ensured that the company would not rely on power from the grid and a generator for their electricity needs, which would have cost them a huge monthly bill on diesel cost and generator maintenance. The Juststandout solution boasts of backing up 70% of the company’s electricity needs. The solution powers their lights, computers, printers and fans, ensuring affordable and comfortable continuity of operations.
