The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has said the nation’s power generation
capacity dropped from 3,959 megawatts on January 4 to 2,662 megawatts on January 22.
The Nigerian Electricity System Operator (SO) website, a sub agency of TCN, disclosed the figure in its daily forecast on power generation data in Lagos yesterday.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that TCN attributed the drop to low water levels at the hydro power stations and dearth of gas to the power generating companies.
The TCN said the total output of 2,662.20 megawatts from all the generation companies yesterday had been transferred to the 11 distribution companies across the country.
