Despite significant investment and resolutions around power generation and distribution, over 60% of users in Lagos are estimated to still be unmetered and this affects the last-mile distribution to customers. The inability to resolve this not only prevents supply of constant and stable electricity, but causes significant revenue leakage and adversely affects the trust the people have in the system.
It is a Social Innovation Challenge targeting social idealists, problem solvers and curious developers in the creative community to proffer inspiring solution to the pervasive Lagos traffic.
