Power generation hits 3,528Mw on February 1 0
The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) says that the nation’s power generation improved slightly to 3,528.90 megawatts on February 1 from 2,662 megawatts on January 22, The Punch reports.
This figure was disclosed on the website of the Nigerian Electricity System Operator, a sub-agency of the TCN, in its daily forecast on power generation in Lagos on Wednesday. It said, “The slight increase in generation is due to slightly increased gas supply to some generating companies to boost operations.”
“The total output of 3,528.90 megawatts from all the GENCOs on Wednesday has been transferred to the 11 distribution companies across the country,” it added. The Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry operational report said the power sector dropped to 2,662.20 megawatt on Jan. 22 because of low water levels and challenge of accessing gas by GENCOs.
