Electricity generation on Wednesday rose to 4,232.6 Megawatts (MW), an appreciable improvement from the 3,500 MW recorded in the last two months, according to the daily electricity generation report from the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN).
The Federal Government's efforts to fix the electricity crisis in Nigeria have not yielded significant result due to gas pipeline vandalism and many homes and businesses are still experiencing constant blackout.
According to the operational report from the TCN, this can be regarded as significant improvement; although still far below the country's peak demand forecast of 19,100MW. Also, analysis from the Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry (NESI) Statistics showed that the power sector lost an estimated N1.2 billion on March 20, due to gas constraints. Specifically, the agency put power output loss to gas constraints at 2,105MW.
