Electrical power, in the short span of two centuries, has become an indispensable part of modern day life. Our work, leisure, healthcare, economy, and livelihood depend on a constant supply of electrical power. Even a temporary stoppage of power can lead to relative chaos, monetary setbacks, and possible loss of life. Power outages can be especially disastrous when it comes to life-support systems in places like hospitals and nursing homes, or in co-ordination facilities such as in airports, Automatic Teller Machine (ATM), and traffic control. While the majority of power failures from national grids last only a few hours, some blackouts can last days or even weeks, completely shutting down production at companies and critical infrastructures such as telecommunication networks, financial services, water supplies and hospitals. Controlling that risk should not just be limited to having emergency back-up generators or being able to relocate their operations and workforce – it also needs to take into account the effect that a power outage could have on their supply chains as well. Renewable energy resource is as resource that can be re-generated through natural process within a relatively short time which can be used to bridge the gap in times of long power outage. This paper therefore examined the renewable energy as a solution to long power outage in Nigeria.
