Power outage in parts of South-East due to rainstorm – EEDC


The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) says the current power outage in some parts of South-East is due to recent rainstorm within the zone.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Head, Corporate Communications of EEDC, Mr Emeka Ezeh, on Monday in Enugu.

“EEDC wishes to inform her esteemed customers across the South-East that the loss of supply in some areas within its network is due to the rainstorm which occurred in the evening of May 28 and early hours of May 29.

“This resulted in faults, occasioned by fallen trees and high rate of broken High and Low Tension poles, causing supply disruption to our 11KV and 33KV feeders across the business districts,” he said.

According to him, our various technical/maintenance teams have since commenced patrol of the network to evaluate the extent of damage and treat faults where they are minimal.

The EEDC spokesman noted that the company regretted the inconveniences these might have caused its esteemed customers.

“We are appealing for our esteemed customers’ patience and understanding while these challenges are addressed.

“EEDC remains committed to delivering improved services to her esteemed customers,” he said.
