Milhouse International

Milhouse International develops projects abroad that aim to ease power blackouts chronic in emerging economies. Currently, Milhouse International is advancing multiple projects in Nigeria.  We are also pursuing similar ventures in Ghana, Camaroon and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).

Milhouse International is progressing multiple gas-to-power opportunities in Nigeria, and is lead sponsor of a 36 MW thermal power project in Southeastern Nigeria. Nigeria is Africa’s most populous country (180 million people) with the continent’s largest gross domestic product (480 billion in 2015).

The thermal power project will provide energy to the country’s national grid and light up one of its leading universities, the University of Nigeria at Nsukka. Less than 50 percent of the entire Nigerian population has access to electricity on a regular basis. Milhouse expects to greatly enrich the lives of those individuals in particular.

Developing Projects

Milhouse Generation Services Energy’s first plant is a coal-fired power project located in the Nsukka area of Enugu, Nigeria on land owned by the University of Nigeria at Nsukka.  (http://www.unn.edu.ng/)
