Energy crunch worsens as output drops to 2,200mw

Nigerians’ economic hardship has taken a turn for the worse as electricity supply dropped from the 4,883.9

mega watts (mw) it recorded in the last one month to 2,200mw as at January 21, 2017.

This is far below the country’s installed capacity of 11,165.40mw and network operational capability of 5,500mw.

Over 450mw of electricity has been trapped at the Afam V Power Station in Rivers State following a fire incident, in which Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) protection and control equipment were destroyed last week.
