Nigeria’s power supply drops by 385.65 MW


The power supply has dropped from 3,993.65 megawatts, MW, to 3,608 MW, indicating a drop of 385.65 MW, because of many challenges, including inadequate gas, poor transmission infrastructure, and limited distribution facilities.

In its latest report obtained by newsmen from the office of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, stated: “On January 2, 2020, average energy sent out was 3,608 MW/Hour (down by 385.65 MW from the previous day). 2,026.5 MW was not generated due to the unavailability of gas.”

It added: “60 MW was not generated due to unavailability of transmission infrastructure, while 2,417.1 MW was not generated due to high frequency resulting from the unavailability of distribution infrastructure. The power sector lost an estimated N2, 162,000,000 (Two Billion One Hundred and Sixty-Two Million Naira) on January 2, 2020, due to constraints from the insufficient gas supply, distribution infrastructure, and transmission infrastructure.”

An investigation by newsmen showed that the development has compelled the Electricity Distribution Companies, DISCOs, to embark on loading nationwide.
