A power supply of 4,143.87 Megawatts from the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has been stable for almost a week, the Nigeria Electricity Supply Industry (NESI) reports.
From December 28th to January 2nd, power generation also remained unchanged at 4,241.39Mw, while peak energy generation remained unchanged at 4,553.2Mw.
During the period under review, the TCN managed to evacuate 4,143.87Mw leaving 97.52Mw stranded in the network.
Babatunde Fashola, Minister of Power, Works and Housing, said the TCN lacked the capacity to evacuate the total power that the generation companies (GenCos) produced to the distribution companies (DisCos).
“We intend to strengthen this part of our responsibility so that we can hold the GenCos and DisCos to their contracts with the citizens.We must play our own role of providing gas and expanding the transmission network,” he said.
