Nigeria’s power generation improves to 4,285 megawatts

According to reports, the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, has said that the country’s power generation has increased from 3,810 megawatts recorded on September 8, 2016 to 4,285.90 megawatts on Friday.


The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the power generation record was reported in the website of “Nigerian Electricity System Operator’’ on Friday.

The TCN said that 4,285.90 megawatts was the total output by power generation companies, and had been transferred to the 11 distribution companies across the country.

Electricity generation in the country has been stable in the last two months, rising from about 2, 983 megawatts to over 4, 000 megawatts.

Although power has improved, many parts of the country have remained with poor supply owing to problems with the distribution companies, including provision of pre-payment meters.

The Acting Chairman of Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, NERC, Anthony Akah, recently disclosed that no fewer than four million electricity consumers in the country were awaiting supply of the meters.

Mr. Akah said that although the commission had improved on metering system, unavailability of meter manufacturing companies was hindering the maximum provision of the product to Nigerians.

He said the commission would sanction any distribution company which failed to comply with directives relating to the distribution of meters.

  1. Very good one


  2. Great one


  3. Nigeria power/electricity generation, transmission and distribution has been a theory for over a century. No Nigeria leader, past and present have been able to find a lasting solution to the country’s power problem. I doubt and disagree with Nigeria leaders that any of them know the true measurement of the country’s landmass (kms). It is also not true that the size of each states as shown in the Nig map is factual. Nigeria leaders simply do not know the true size of the country and that is what is affecting planning. Pls forgive me for saying this.


  4. Lie lie
