The lifeblood of this modern world is Electricity, yet dirty diesel generators have been the only way Nigerians access that lifeblood. To keep out the darkness, households in Nigeria own and operate an estimated 22 million small gasoline generators (I better-pass-my-neighbor) whose combined generating capacity is eight times higher than the NERC eleven (DisCos) supply combined.

Businesses and individuals spend about $12 billion a year, twice the country’s annual infrastructure budget, fueling these generators.

The 18650 lithium-ion battery is the gasoline of the 21st century and the game-charger to captive off-grid new energy lifeblood.

The 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry are awarded to John Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham and Akira Yoshino “for the development of lithium-ion batteries”.

This underscores the importance of batteries to take the place of fossil fuels in global energy sources.

Blackwatts is designing home solar energy system and business solar energy generator, that doesn’t just capture free energy from the sun, but stores your daily energy yield in an advanced 18650 cells you can recharge 6,000 – 8,000 times or a life cycle of 16 yrs – 21 yrs.

The 5 generation energy system is like a “ I better-pass-my-neighbor” clean energy generator that requires no fuel or maintenance cost, at least for the next 16 years, post installation.
