Power generation by Nigeria’s 27 power plants continues to remain very low, dropping to 2,312 megawatts on Sunday, despite restoration of the collapsed national power grid.
According to the electricity generation chart issued by the national system operator on Sunday afternoon, only 13 of the power plant were contributing to the national electricity grid.
Most of the 13 plants were even operating below their installed capacity.
The power plant still contributing electricity to the grid are Geregu, Azura, Edo, Shiroro, Jebba, Sapele, Omotoso, Olorunsogo, Trans Amadi, Afam, Ihorvbor, and Omoku.
The low generation and the failure of others to generate power despite restoration, is blamed largely on the disruption in the supply of gas.
Out of the available power in the grid, the Ibadan electricity distribution company received the highest allocation of 373.6 megawatts.
