We were notified about a #TweetChat (hashtag #247Power) with Guest @femiadeyemo, the Founder and CEO of Arnergy where he would be debunking the common myths about Solar Power in Nigeria.

We had first head about Femi and Arnergy over at the Naibac Blog so we knew we were in for an informative session. We also decided to capture the tweets here for the reading pleasure of our viewers so enjoy:

Arnergy ‏@Arnergy
Hello everyone! Here we go...@femiadeyemo debunking #solar myths in #Nigeria. #247Power


Arnergy ‏@Arnergy
Myths 1: @femiadeyemo #Solar does not work in #Nigeria. #247Power


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
Good afternoon #Nigerians, it's a pleasure to have this tweetchat to orientate our people on how to expei #247power at home and their biz


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
#solar installed by professionals has no reason NOT to work in Nigeria #247Power


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
#Nigeria has abundant solar insolation (sun-hours) in compares to say Germany.#247Power


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
#solar alone can provide #Nigerians with #247Power


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
The reasons why most of the existing #solar installations does not work is due sub-standard component and inferior products.#247Power


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
Also, there are success stories of commercial #solar projects that has been operational since commissioned.#247Power


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
However, #solar financed by the public sector without vendor screening and adequate maintenance in place are bound to fail #247Power


Arnergy ‏@Arnergy
Myths 2: #solar installation cost is TOO expensive for #Nigerians. #247Power


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
I quite agree that #upfront cost of #solar to enjoy #247Power is still higher than the cost of procuring diesel/petrol generator...


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
with #solar ,you donít have to buy N500($3)/day on petrol to enjoy #247Power


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
with #solar ,you donít have to buy N500($3)/day spending N182,500/y for just 8 hrs of power on petrol to enjoy #247Power.cc @TrafficChiefNG


Arnergy ‏@Arnergy
With #Solar you are buying 25 years energy today to enjoy #247power & you are hedged against fluctuation is diesel/petrol price @solar_org


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
Cost of N365,000/US$2,150 pa for 16 hrs of #energy means a lot of Nigerian goes to bed in dark with #solar u achieve #247power for 25yrs


Arnergy ‏@Arnergy
Myths 3: Maintenance & Repair cost will kill you when you go #solar in #Nigeria.#247Power


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy #247power, Maintaining #solar is not head ache, you only need to clean the #solar panels with water if your environment is dusty


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy #247power #renewables technology is tried & tested, there r storage solutions that come with 8years warranty, no maintenance issues


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy #247power with #solar you r not at d mercy of artisan who r always looking 4 prey,#renewables is most times little or no maint


Arnergy ‏@Arnergy
Myths 4: #Solar can ONLY power light bulb. It can't power iron, microwave, deep-freezer, processing & manufacturing equipment.#247Power


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
With #Solar #Nigeria ailing manufacturing industries can be brought back to live #247power providing employment for our youth.


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy "A life without electricity is a life with limited opportunity". When #Nigeria has #247power with #solar @USAID @UNICEF @SE4ALL


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy , When #Nigerians have #247power with #solar, our industries operates optimally & our youths will be gainfully employed @UNICEF


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy,When #Nigeria have #247power with #solar,industries will operate optimally & our youths will be gainfully employed @TonyElumeluFDN


Arnergy ‏@Arnergy
Myths 5: Inverter is better than #solar system in #Nigeria. Cc:@Gidi_Traffic @TrafficChiefNG #247Power


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy ,When #Africans have #247power with #solar, our industries operates optimally & our youths will be gainfully employed @YALINetwork


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy , When #Nigerians have #247power with #solar, d industries operates optimally & our youths will be gainfully employed @Ogaugust451


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy @Gidi_Traffic @TrafficChiefNG #247power With Inverter, u only store energy, you still need to burn money daily for petrol or diesel


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy @Gidi_Traffic @TrafficChiefNG #247power, An Inverter alone system kills battery very fast sometime you need to change them with 1yr


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy @Gidi_Traffic @TrafficChiefNG #247power, the common inverter(gel) battery in #Nigeria has 1000 cycles @ 50% depth of discharge


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy @Gidi_Traffic @TrafficChiefNG #247power, everytime #Nigerians switch on generator to "charge" d inverter say for 2 hrs is a cycle


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy @Gidi_Traffic @TrafficChiefNG #247power so when d system shut down after 3 hrs and generator kicks in again, another cycle begins


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy @Gidi_Traffic @TrafficChiefNG #247power, many #Nigerians do 5 cycle a day on the inverter batteries,meaning 1000 cycles /5cyc a day


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy @Gidi_Traffic @TrafficChiefNG #247power reason why most Nigerians complain about their inverter. The solution to d problem is clear


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy @Gidi_Traffic @TrafficChiefNG #247power, with #Solar, ur system start to charge 6.30am in Lagos #solar ensure a charging cycle/day


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy @Gidi_Traffic @TrafficChiefNG #247power, So Solar and Generator r 2 parallel lines, when u have Solar you become your own generator


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy @Gidi_Traffic @TrafficChiefNG #247power,when u go #Solar,u have peace of mind,no more generator noise & u can live happily in naija


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy @energyaction @energyaccessPN #247power, #solar industry has seen d entry of competent Nigerian professionals in d last 12 months


Femi Adeyemo ‏@femiadeyemo
@Arnergy @energyaction @energyaccessPN #247power @votesolar ,So #Nigerians shd look out 4 quality PV & battery shd have min 5 yrs warranty


Arnergy ‏@Arnergy
