Due to the fact that sources or conventional means of energy generation arc finite and fast depleting, most industrialized countries have started research on solar energy as a renewable sources or energy.
This paper presents the present state of conventional energy generation in a developing economy like Nigeria. The efforts made in solar energy research .and utilization arc highlighted. A case is made for a systematic and coordinated financial investment in solar energy research and adaptation to complement the generation from conventional sources.
