Generator Prices in Nigeria (2019) Plus Complete Buying Guide

The continuous epileptic power supply in Nigeria has led to a continuously booming generator market as more Nigerians seek for a more reliable means of power supply.

As more Nigerians strive for this alternative, generator brands work even harder to make their generator sets more efficient and effective and also produce generator sets with various capacities at affordable prices to suit every income level.

This means that low-income Nigerians can also afford this alternative means of power.

This review showcases the price list of generators in Nigeria from popular brands. It also contains a buying guide to help you to chose the model that best suit your needs.


Where to Buy Generators in Nigeria

Buying Online

You can buy generators from e-commerce (online stores) sites like Jumia and Konga; these sites might offer generators at a higher price due to added costs of delivery.

It is important to check user reviews and seller authenticity before finalizing your purchase to ensure you are buying from a trusted seller. Also, check the warranty and return policy in the case for a faulty generator or wrong model.


Buying Offline

You can either buy your generator from the manufacturer (brand owners) offices or from their distributors nationwide.

It is advisable to buy from the manufacturer’s office to enjoy free delivery services offered by some brands like Mikano. If you can’t get it from the manufacturer’s office, then buying from a distributor should be your next option.

Before finalizing the purchase, test-run the generator at the seller’s location to ensure it works effectively and efficiently. Also, inspect for leakages and missing or faulty features.


Factors Affecting Prices of Generators in Nigeria

Below, I’m going to list the prices of generators of every capacity and their brands. These prices are not static and will vary depending on your location, season, and salesperson.

If you noticed, sometimes generators of the same capacities but different brands have different prices. This is due to the quality of each generator and its features. The fact that a generator of a certain brand and capacity is more expensive than another from a different brand but the same capacity doesn’t mean it will be more reliable, efficient, or last longing.

It is important to check the reputation of a brand through user reviews and popularity before settling from any model from that brand.

Key Things to Consider When Buying a Generator In Nigeria

When buying a generator or planning to buy a generator in Nigeria, there are some few things you should consider first and cross-check at the seller’s location to ensure that you buy the most reliable and durable of models so that you get the best value for your money.


Power Rating

All generators come with a power rating which gives a view of the amount of power they can deliver. When buying a generator, it is important to consider the number and the power requirements of appliances and electronics you wish to power before settling for a model.

Appliances such as pressing irons and refrigerators will require generators with a power rating of above 3.5KVA to work efficiently.

Small generators, popularly known as “I better pass my neighbour” generators (mostly with a power rating from 0.65KVA to 0.9KVA), are suitable for those who wish to power up only a few appliances and electronics such as TV, DVD player, home theatre etc. It is important to check the typical power requirements of certain appliances and electronics before allowing them to draw power from your generator set.

Refrigerators, washing machines, air conditioners, and some pressing irons will normally require a generator with a high rating to power them.


Starting Method

Back in the days, most generators would come with the traditional recoil (rope) starter method which required a lot of effort to get your generator operational. Presently, with the advancement of technology, there are easier ways to start your generator set including the key starter method (which involves just turning a key) and the push-button starter method (which involves just pushing a button).

It is worthy to note that these models are more expensive than the recoil starter type when considering either the key starter or push method generator type.



Power rating, starting method, features and fuel type are the main things that will determine how you budget for your generator set. Quality could also be a factor as some generator brands which offer reliable and long-lasting generator sets are quite expensive compared with other brands.


Fuel Type

Generators run on two types of fuel types namely; petrol and diesel. While diesel generators are mostly large and used by companies and factories, you would still find medium-sized generators that run on diesel.

Diesel generators are quite economical in the long run compared to the petrol type. Although, they are more expensive during purchase. Petrol type generators are mostly small and medium-sized generators.

The fuel type of your generator can determine the amount of maintenance it will require and the cost of long-term use.


Brand Popularity

Brand popularity is also another factor to consider and it is really important for several reasons. A popular brand could certainly mean it is durable, efficient and reliable which is why it is the choice of most users. Also, a popular brand will mean that the spare parts of its generator sets will be readily available and will prevent the problem of spare parts scarcity.


Fuel Efficiency

The fuel efficiency of a generator depends on the quality of the generator engine and the power rating. A generator with a power rating of 1.5KVA will consume fuel faster than one with a power rating of 0.75KVA. Nevertheless, it is important to buy from a good brand that produces high-quality generators with powerful and reliable engines that economize fuel.

Before making a decision, you can check user reviews, feedback, ask distributors and also check the specifications and features of your preferred generator model before settling for that model.


Noise Production

If you plan to put your generator close to your house or office, it is important to get the best brand with the lowest level of noise production. It is, however, advisable to keep your generator far away from your house to prevent inhaling the exhaust fumes which is quite deadly.

If you simply can’t keep it far from your house for any reason, then you should consider soundproof generators which are more expensive than their open-type counterparts but offer a super quiet experience during operation.



This concludes the review on generator prices in Nigeria.

When planning to buy a generator set, it is paramount you consider popular brands like Mikano, Tiger, Honda, Elepaq, Sumec Firman, Elemax, Thermocool, and Lutian first. These brands would definitely offer you more features, cheaper prices, and reliable and efficient generator sets.

Also, I recommend you buy from the manufacturer or distributor rather than buying online to prevent buying counterfeit, contraband or stolen generator sets.
