Benin disco explains epileptic power supply
The Managing Director of Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC), Mrs. Funke Osibodu has said that the company was ready to meet customers demand as long as they have access to needed power, just as she noted the tariff regime is in line with the regulations in the industry as approved by the National Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).
Osibodu disclosed that with a daily allocation of about 129 megawatts of electricity out of the 1,175 national power generation, there was little the electricity distribution company could do presently to ensure stable power supply to its customers in Edo, Delta, Ondo and Ekiti states.
She said this yesterday in her welcome address during the town hall meeting between electricity consumers and BEDC which held at the Oba Akenzua Cultural Centre, Benin.
The Managing Director attributed the drop in the nation’s national output from the previous 3,000 megawatts to 1,175 megawatts to the vandalism of power facilities, noting that the country needed to generate over 8,500 megawatts of electricity to have a relatively stable power supply.
