Power Generation Plunges to 2,800Megawatts

The Federal Government, on Tuesday, March 1, reported a major drop in peak power supply through the national grid from over 5,000 megawatts to less than 2,800 megawatts.

The situation was blamed on the incessant vandalization activities launched by miscreants.

The acting Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, NERC, Anthony Akah, made the remarks during the signing of Memorandum of Understanding, MOU, with the Consumer Protection Council, CPC,

Akah solicited support of members of the public and the council to collaborate with the service providers and security agencies to ensure security of electrical installations.

He, however, said that the Commission will soon compel electricity distribution companies to publish their meter deployment schedules so as to ensure adherence to the meter roll out plan contained in the performance agreement signed with government by the utility firms.
