Nigeria’s national grid collapses again, electricity drops to 42.7WM

Nationwide Blackout looms as Electricity Grid collapses

Nigeria electricity has collapsed again, as power generation dropped from a peak of 3,594.60 megawatts (MW) at about 1:00a.m. at midnight to a meagre 42.7MW at the point of writing this report.

Only Delta Power plant was active on the grid with 41.00MW as at 12 noon today while Afam had 1.7MW.

This comes barely five days after the grid collapsed twice within a space of more than 12 hours leaving the nation in total darkness.

Meanwhile, the Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Plc (PHED) has warned the public against erecting, trading, or living under power lines in her franchise areas. The warning followed the recent electrocution of nine persons while attempting to erect a billboard under the power line. Five people died in the incident, while four survived.

Using 30 per cent inflation as a rationale for increasing electricity tariffs by electricity distribution companies (DisCo) is flawed and not supported by logic, the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) has said.

Stakeholders have called on customers to be wary of fraudsters who would take advantage of the prepaid meter update claiming to be from electricity distribution companies (DisCos).
