As determined by the administration of Senator Ibikunle Amosun to put an end to the incessant power outage experienced at the state secretariat and other government establishments, the Ogun State Government has put in place a 10 mega watt Mini Power Plant located at Onijoganjogan in Ewekoro Local Government area of the State.

The Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Arch, Olamilekan Adegbite who disclosed this in an interview with newsmen, said the project when completed would boost power supply to government establishments and power street lights in the State.

“The plant is to serve government establishments like, quarters, hospitals, model schools, secretariat and the powering of street lights,” He said.

He explained that the old mini power plant was installed before the inception of the present administration in 2011, explaining that it had only three mega watt which was later upgraded to seven mega watt and could only serve for five hours per day.

Adegbite added that similar power plant would also be established at other major cities in the State, disclosing that the project was a public private partnership with a legislation to back up its sustainability.

“We are not replacing IBDEC, there is room for captive generation, we are generating for ourselves in a more sustainable manner and that is what we are doing,” Adegite said.
