Nigeria: Electricity Grid Hits 4,000MW As 2017 Begins

Electricity generation at the national grid has sustained the peak of 4,000megawatts (mw) into 2017 since it reached the level last Tuesday, records have shown.

Data available from the Nigeria System Operator (NSO) shows that peak generation in December 2016 was highest when it hit 4,173mw; it hurriedly dipped to 3,417mw same day.

In what appears to be a fresh start in 2017, the system has sustained the threshold within the last three days with the highest being at 4,208mw attained on January 1.

The peak generation Tuesday was 4,124mw with 91,384 megawatts hour (mwh) wheeled by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) to the 11 Distribution companies for supply to the over six million registered customers.

This is the second highest power supplied in 2017 after TCN wheeled 93,520mwh on New Year day when the grid had the highest peak generation in the year.

Supplementary weekly operation statistics from the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) shows that the number of units of turbines in operations rose steeply early December from 30 to nearly 50 units indicating more gas supply to the Generation Companies (Gencos) in the month.
