The Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, has revealed that power generation in the country has dropped by 1,018.5MW to about 1,400MW between the hours of 6am and 3pm on Tuesday.

In a statement by the Assistant General Manager, Public Affairs, TCN, Clement Ezeolisah “The management of the System Operation/Market Operation of the Transmission Company of Nigeria has alerted that electricity generation into the national grid has dropped to 1,400MW as of Tuesday, 17th of May, 2016".

He added that “The downward trend of electricity generation is due to constraints in the thermal power stations, which have prevented the generators from producing at optimal levels. However, it is noteworthy to report that all stakeholders are working assiduously to achieve improvement in the power supply deliverables. The attendant inconvenience as a result of low power generation is regretted.”

The country had recorded a peak generation of 2,868MW the previous day and a low of 2,166MW. It has capacity to generate a bit over 10,000MW.
