Egbin Power Plc. Lagos is one of the biggest additions to the electricity industry in Nigeria. Often seen as the biggest single generating power station in Sub-
Saharan Africa, it was built to meet the every rising demand for electricity in Lagos and its environs.
Following the nation's privatization exercise, Sahara, through its power division, Sahara Power Group and sundry affiliations, acquired the 1320 MW installed capacity Egbin Power Plant.
We are working towards deploying a minimum of 5,000 MW of electricity generation over the next five years.
