Christopher J Onwuasoanya started Atlantic Waste and Power System in 2013, with the purpose of helping Nigerians achieve the goal of having clean and reliable electricity. Over the past 45 years Nigeria has generated between 4000 and 5000 MW of electricity to serve over 180 million people. Over 100 million Nigerians have no grid access.
Mr. Onwuasoanya who has lived in the United States since 1982, had become accustomed to having electricity 24/7. On his visits to Nigeria, the noise and pollution from generators made sleeping a challenge. Unaccustomed to the noise, he realized that sleeping pills or earplugs could not be a permanent solution. Nigeria is blessed with abundant sun and roof space. Marrying the two, created a solution to a problem that has challenged Nigerians for generations.
