Airtel Denies Awarding Nationwide Solar Contract To Power 600 Cell Sites

Telecommunication service provider, Airtel Nigeria, has debunked a recent report that it awarded a contract to WATT Renewable Corporation (WATT) to deliver over 32MW installed capacity of solar PV and storage across 600 cell sites across Nigeria.

Director of corporate communications and CSR, Airtel Nigeria, Femi Adeniran, in a statement said, the involvement of Airtel Nigeria with WATT was limited to only 30 sites as a proof of concept of WATT’s Energy-as-a-Service offering; of the 30 sites commissioned, 18 are currently up and running.

“The report in the press about Airtel Nigeria awarding this nationwide contract to WATT Renewable Corporation is inaccurate,” Adeniran said.

The director averred that, Airtel Nigeria is indeed committed to its sustainability goals and continues to pursue its Net Zero objectives across its operations. “As we progress in our path towards achieving these, we will keep the public updated,” he assured.
