The Rural Electrification Strategy and Implementation Plan of Nigeria was adopted in 2006 with a goal to set electrification targets and establish ways of achieving them.

Nigeria targets to reach 75% electrification rate by 2020. Achieving this target will involve electrifying 471 000 rural households each year from 2007 to 2020. Subsequently, Nigeria plans to reach a full electrification rate by 2040 connecting 513 000 households each year from 2020 to 2040.

Increased electrification rate will be achieved with both conventional and renewable energy sources, the latter with on-grid and off-grid applications.
