Load rejection stops 2,900mw into electricity grid

The nation’s electricity grid crashed significantly to a peak generation of 3,346 megawatts (mw) yesterday, hours after 27 turbines were deprived of generating 2,979mw because of poor gas supply and transmission line problems, the Daily Trust reports.

Industry statistics obtained from the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) shows Monday’s peak electricity generation was 4,134mw with the lowest generation at 2,548mw.

Although an average of 4,000mw peak generation has been sustained, by yesterday the peak generation dipped to 3,346mw, the lowest in the last 23 days when the peak grid power dropped to 3,635mw on May 21, 2017.
