Electricity:  Nigeria Power generation increases from 3,810mw to 4,285.90mw – TCN


Nigeria’s power generation has increased from 3,810 megawatts recorded on Sept. 8, 2016, to 4,285.90 megawatts on Friday, according to a report released by the “Nigerian Electricity System Operator’’.

The Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, said that the country’s power generation has increased to 4,285.90 megawatts which was the total output by power generation companies, and had been transferred to the 11 distribution companies across the country.

Electricity generation in the country has been stable in the last two months, rising from about 2, 983 megawatts to over 4, 000 megawatts.

Although power has improved, many parts of the country have remained with supply owing to problems with the distribution companies, including the provision of pre-payment meters.

Acting Chairman of Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), Dr. Anthony Akah, had recently disclosed that no fewer than four million electricity consumers in the country were awaiting supply of the meters.
