Electricity Supply Drops To 2,817.05MW - Federal Ministry Of Power by msmon(m): 7:13am On May 08, 2015
Power supply from the Transmission Company of
Nigeria (TCN) has dropped from 2,979.06 Mega
Watts (MW) recorded last Sunday to 2,817.05MW on Tuesday, the Federal Ministry of Power said.

Supply by Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry,
according to the power statistics which the ministry
posted on its website yesterday, dipped by 162.01MW in the period under review.

Of the 2,880.72 MW that the Electricity Generation
Companies (Gencos) produced, the TCN wheeled
2,817.05 MW to the Electricity Distribution
Companies (Discos), leaving 63.67MW stranded in
transmission.

The electricity market, however, reached a peak of
3,114.60MW from the 2,893.7MW recorded last
Sunday, showing an increase of 220.9MW.

The Group Executive Director, Gas and Power,
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dr. David Ige, explained that the loss of 400 million
standard cubic feet per day (mscf/f) of gas and
reduction in water level at the hydro plants was
responsible for the decline in power supply.

According to him, some major pipelines were out of
operation because they were vandalised as
generation from Shiroro hydropower plant dropped to about 300MW due to inadequate water level.
Ige assured that once the water level hits about one
billion cubic feet a day (bscf/d), the electricity market would record a significant improvement.

The NNPC chief was quoted as saying: “At the
moment, gas supply to power stations is about one
billion cubic feet a day (bscf/d). Before the end of this year, we expect to see a significant increase as well. Cumulatively in the country, we are producing about two billion cubic feet of gas per day. Some of the gas we produce are available, but is probably stranded because some of the plants are not ready.
For example, we have got gas at Gbarian-Ubie power plant, commissioned shortly. We have gas at Omoku, which is awaiting the power plant. We have gas at Egbema power plant. When you bring all these volumes together, we have close to two billion cubic feet per day.”

But, the management of Abuja Electricity Distribution Company yesterday explained the
reason for the loss of electricity supply to some parts of its franchise area, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

In a statement, the firm said the loss of power supply was as a result of the sharp drop in the quantum of power made available to it by the System Operator, which it said was attributable to a (partial) system collapse.

The company, however, said all concerned players in electricity supply industry, especially the generation and transmission companies, were already working on the system with a view to restoring supply as quickly as possible.

Pledging that it would immediately distribute the
load allocated to it by the System Operator, the
management appealed for the understanding of its
customers.

I am pretty sure this perennial problem is more of political will than technical know-how.
This is the result of the fraudulent privatization that some saTANists wants us to celebrate and praise gej for.
What else can we really expect when the gov. sell public assets to their friends and allies as compensation for their roles in dirty politics just to hang on to power. I flew in to Nigeria some months back in the night and everywhere was dark - sharp contrast to what I saw when I left and got to my destination also in the night.

While privatization is the way to a lasting solution to this disgraceful problem, using it as a compensation for cronies can only produce more reduction in available power - how else do we explain lower available power when gej was on commissioning spree a week to elections.

I know for sure some private companies are already generating electricity from gas. I strongly believe this can be replicated by the discos. It is only when it comes to IPP that gas supply becomes an issue. The discos should be given a "partial" license to generate a fraction of the electricity demand for their area. All legislation barring them to generate should be relaxed. Imagine kaduna disco or eko disco or phed generating about 30% of the demand. Add that to what is already being supplied to them from the grid. It should come to about 60%. At an individual level, this translate to about 16 hours of electricity for everybody.

Their is no miracle Buhari can perform if we have to wait for the national grid. The discos needs to be given a bit more role.

Its high time Nigerians ask who are behind these vandals that destroy the gas pipelines.This is a clear case of sabotage as i believe that they did'nt do it to siphon gas but just to disrupt the flow to the power plants so Nigerians can wallow in darkness.Why cant they be caught and made to confess who sponsors them?

PDP is going down with its abysimal megawatt supply together.

Buhari is coming with his fresh megawatts. By the time Buhari leaves power in 2023 Nigeria will be generating atleast 40,000 megawatts by God's grace.

How did we get to this stage in our counntry? Its so unfortunate. Where was the same electical power generating plants GEJ claimed he commissioned weeks to election? Where are the billions spent on the same issue every year? GEJ brought Nigeria to the lowest level of life and existence. He is truely a curse as predicted.

Transformation, transformation.

Well...let;s face the facts..

1.Transmission needs to be fixed.

2.Nuclear power could give us an additional 5000MW. Let's try it.

3.Sahara desert is not a horror zone. A large solar farm there, as a sort of JV with Niger Republic....could give us some energy.

4.How are our HEP's?

5.And FGS....why are WE still flaring GAS?

During the 2011 election campaigns, Jonathan boasted that the country was generating over 4,000 MW. Obviously, things have since gone worse, even with more investments in the last 4 years.

Another reason to convince me I was right voting against him this time.
