The Executive Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has said that State Government’s plan is to increase the output of the Alausa Independent Power Plant (IPP) in response to the growing need to sustain the “Light-Up Lagos” project initiated by the preceding administration as well as absorbing more public offices in the state owned power grid.

This was made known on an inspection tour of the Alausa Independent Power Plant (IPP) on Thursday.

According to him “This exercise is required in line with the State Government’s plan to increase the output of the IPP in response to the growing need to sustain the “Light-Up Lagos” project initiated by the preceding administration as well as absorbing more public offices in the state owned power grid.

He said the administration plans to harness private investment to optimize the current usage and upscale the output of the IPP.

“We performed this on-the-spot assessment to determine the level of investment required to solve the operational challenges currently experienced in the plant as well as enumerating the revamping needs.

He said his administration will continue to expand and grow the “Light-Up Lagos” initiative to strategic highways and locations including Ikorodu Road, Ogudu, Oworonshoki, Adeniyi Jones and Oba Akran amongst others.

Alausa IPP is a state owned IPP built 7 years ago to provide electricity to most of the public institutions in Ikeja whilst powering key public infrastructure including streetlights on major highways.
