On Friday, Eko Electricity Distribution Company apologized to its customers for the reduced power supply and cited low national grid allocation as the cause.
The power company said it had been concerned about “the persistent low power supply allocation it has received from the Transmission Company of Nigeria in recent times”, adding that it had not been able to meet the supply demands of its customers.
The company’s spokesperson, Mr. Godwin Idemudia, said in a statement: “TCN’s current total power supply allocation to the various power plants in our grid has increased from 450MW to 156MW.
“For example, the planned supply allocation for the Alagbon transmission substation is 100 MW, but we currently receive 67 MW, while the Ijora transmission substation foresees an average of 75 MW. , but currently receives 13 MW, which is far from sufficient to satisfy our customers.
Idemudia apologized to customers for the inconvenience and assured them that Eko Disco was actively working with TCN to offer a quick resolution to the issue.
