Power generation drops further, now 1400MW
The nation’s troubled electricity power sector again witnessed a dip in supply, as generation went to as low as 1400 mega watts yesterday.
Officials confirmed the development, but attributed it to gas supply issues.
Gas has continuously plagued the power sector, as majority of the nation’s power plants are gas-fired.
Assistant General Manager (Public Affairs) at the System Operation of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), Clement Ezeolisah, attributed the drop to ‘thermal issues’.
“The Management of the System Operation/ Market Operation of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has alerted that electricity generation into the National Grid has dropped to 1400MW as at Tuesday, 17th May, 2016.
“…The downward trend of electricity generation is due to constraints in the thermal power stations which have prevented the generators from producing at optimal levels,” he added.
The TCN image-maker assured that stakeholders were working assiduously to achieve improvements in the power supply deliverables.
