The decrease in power transmission to electricity distribution companies is a result of the constraints experienced by thermal generating companies.
This was disclosed by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN).
In a statement on Thursday, Jan. 25, TCN’s General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah, said it is, however, working with relevant stakeholders in the power sector to keep the grid intact despite the current low power generated into the system.
It stated that the decrease has "impacted the quantum of bulk power available on the transmission grid for onward transmission to the distribution load centres nationwide."
"TCN is doing everything possible in collaboration with stakeholders in the power sector to ensure that it continues to keep the grid intact despite the current low power generated into the system.
"Consequent upon the current load on the grid, load distributed to the distribution load centres has also reduced, as TCN can only transmit what is generated," Mbah stated.
