Power supply dips to 4,108MW – System Operator


Data from the Nigerian Electricity System Operator of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has shown that there is no sign of improved electricity supply to Nigerians as the nation recorded an average power sent out of 4,108MW on December 26, Vanguard reports.

This contradicts TCN’s claim that it recorded a new national peak with the transmission of 5,222.3megawatts (MW), the same day, the highest ever recorded in Nigeria’s power sector to-date.

Explaining the power situation, TCN said that out of the 4,108MW achieved on December 26th, 1095MW was lost due to gas constraint while 466MW was lost due to water constraint.
