Millennium Fellowship Project: Xodus Energy Project
Xodus Energy Project, is a project set up to solve the SDG 7:Affordable and Clean Energy. We do this by providing highly efficient LED bulbs to replace the incandescent energy wasting bulbs, hence reducing the cost of energy for using Incandescent bulb for lightning in Nigeria.
We also set up events to teach youths how to do energy audit in their houses and how to install Solar panels. We collaborate with Distribution companies (DisCos) in Nigeria to ensure that the Nigerian people understand what tariffs and peak energy demand hour is and how it affects their bills.
We hope to see that the rural areas have stopped using Incandescent bulb, and the urban areas have reduced the unnecessary usage of electricity from the grid by practicing energy efficiency.
