Mahmud expressed optimism that the government would achieve the feat through the organisation`s strategic plans which include; growing silicon ingots and production of silicon wafers.
The other, he said, was production of solar cells locally so that Nigeria could have 100 per cent made in Nigeria solar cells and solar PV modules that could compete favourably with any other in the world.
“NSEL produces Solar PV Module/Salar Panel, 7.5 MW plant and carries out electric load survey, auditing Solar PV Power System installation, maintenance, training and consultancy,” he added.
Responding, the NAN Editor-in-Chief, Malam Lawal Ado, thanked Mahmud for educating staff on solar PV panel.
He said diversification of energy sources would definitely promote national development. (NAN)
