NHIA employs renewable energy to strengthen the ecosystem of health insurance.

To address the issues with energy supply, the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) has commissioned a 57.6kw solar power infrastructure.

This was stated on Saturday in Abuja by Prof. Mohammed Sambo, Director General of NHIA, in a statement that was also the authority’s Head of Press, Mr. Emmanuel Ononokpono.

Sambo emphasized the value of consistent electricity supply in the fast-growing health insurance environment, stating that it was impossible to service the requirements of insured Nigerians without a steady supply of electricity.

He claimed that the cost of generating electricity using diesel-powered plants had reached intolerably high levels and that the use of renewable and clean energy was now considered the norm on a global scale.

Additionally, Mr. Joseph Amakurugbonwo, the authority’s acting general manager for information, communication, and technology (ICT), noted the uniqueness of the project, which included the production of renewable energy and a constant supply of electricity.

Other oddities, according to Amakurugbonwo, include green energy that produces no noise or air pollution, no power surges or variations that could harm delicate office equipment, and control over the electricity that leads to a large decrease in overhead expenditures.

According to him, surplus energy might be given to nearby towns and the National Grid following any applicable laws.

He claims that as part of its efforts to automate its services, the authority has built a high-tech digital infrastructure that is available nationwide.
