Power Generator

Saving Small businessses since ojo gbogboro. This power generating set is by far the most ubiquitious unit everywhere in Nigeria. In a country still besotted with electric power issues, survival of small businesses lie somewhere in the heart of this small generating set.

Popularly nick named ‘i better pass my neighbour’, largely because at some point in the past it was the cheapest generator you could buy, and it was pretty expensive. If you had it, the neigbours would come and watch tv in your house. With a full 4L tank, this set will run non stop from between 8 to 10 hours, 12 hours in some super tweaked sets.

Today however, everyone has one. Well, maybe not everyone, but its everywhere and that nickname no longer cuts it. In recent times, there has been a roll out of free prepaid meters and consequently, the power supply in my lucky area has been real good, at least 22 hours of supply a day. Sometimes however, some gas pipelines get blown up and we are again flung into darkness. Thanks to this cute winner, you can still enjoy day long electicity at a petrol cost that is somewhat affordable for small busniesses.

The barber across the street has a very unique specie of this generator. Sputtering and convulsing as if it would soon explode or grind to everlasting halt at any moment in time, this gen set will sometimes work non-stop for 10 straight hours if theres no lull in customer traffic. And if it does grind to a halt, they are quick to open it up, oil it, wax it, blow it, carress it and its back to sputtering goodness.

Say yaaay if you’ve got one of these babies.
