DisCos Report Fresh National Grid Collapse

On Monday, certain electricity distribution businesses reported a new collapse of the national grid, resulting in power outages for their consumers.

The system shut down again, and generation plummeted to 64.70 megawatts at 2:42 a.m. on Monday, according to representatives from some of the DisCos.

According to an earlier report, the Independent System Operator’s most recent data showed the system generating 266.50mw of electricity from Okpai, Geregu, and Ibom power.

Jos DisCo confirmed the breakdown in a statement, saying: “The current outage inside our franchise States is the result of a lack of power supply from the national grid. The loss of power supply from the national grid occurred in the early hours of today, Monday, April 15, 2024, at approximately 0242 hours, resulting in the loss of power supply on all of our feeds.”

Dr Friday Adakole Elijah, the company’s head of Corporate Affairs, expressed hope that the grid will be restored so that clients could have normal power supply.

The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) verified the collapse with a statement headlined “NOTICE OF TOTAL SYSTEM COLLAPSE”.

“The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company PLC (EEDC) wishes to inform her valued customers of a total system failure that occurred at 2:41 a.m. today, April 15th, 2024.”

“This caused a loss of supply to all of our interface TCN stations. We were unable to serve our consumers in Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu, and Imo states.

“However, the situation is gradually improving, since we received supplies at the Awada TCN station in Onitsha at 7:30 a.m.

“We are in continual communication with the necessary authorities and are expecting the full restoration of supplies by the National Control Centre, NCC, Oshogbo. “Thank you for your usual understanding and cooperation.”

Emeka Ezeh, Head of Corporate Communications at EEDC, issued a statement.

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) had not to confirm the collapse as of press time.
