Power Generation Hits 4,285 Megawatts – TCN



electricity-cable3-300x225The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has said that the country’s power generation has increased from 3,810 megawatts recorded on September 8, 2016 to 4,285.90 megawatts on Friday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the power generation record was reported on the website of Nigerian Electricity System Operator on Friday.

TCN said that 4,285.90 megawatts 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 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.

Akah said that although the commission had improved on metering system, unavailability of meter manufacturing companies was hindering the maximum provision of the product to Nigerians.

He said that the commission will sanction any distribution company that fail to comply with directives relating to the distribution of meters.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    Abegi, make I hear word. It has improved, we agree but what caused the change in watt? Is it the rain? what exactly? Na so dry season go come now, una go begin de blame past administration and Avengers. During this season we always have better power supply, so it’s nothing new Fash.

      I’ve learnt my lesson on top this rain=more light business, still doesn’t make any sense but its Nigeria, so I’m rolling with it.

      But, I’m tempted to give the credit to reduction in pipe-line vandalism + damaged gas lines being fixed.

      People like you don’t deserve a country that works. Please, stay out of Nigeria so that God can continue to punish you without punishing me.
