Constraints caused by shortage of gas to fire the generating plants reduced power from 4,307megawatts (Mw) on August 5 to 3,967Mw on Sunday, The Nation reports.
As a result, the Nigeria Electricity System Operator (SO) of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) sent out 3175Mw to the 11 distribution companies (DisCos). The Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry (NESI) on its website on Monday, reported that line constraint was 240Mw.
It noted that water constraint that was 142Mw rose marginally by 1Mw. All the constraints, on the day under review, resulted in the loss of an estimated equivalent of N2,088, 000, 000 on August 7 due to constraints.
