Nigeria: Power Sector Achieves New Daily Energy Peak Of 110,724.93MWh


The Transmission Company of Nigeria has said that the nation’s power sector has achieved a new daily grid energy peak of 110,724.93MWH.

A statement signed by Ndidi Mbah, the General Manager, Public Affairs of the agency said that the new maximum daily energy peak was much higher than the last one attained over two years ago by 1,352.92MWH.

It explained that the maximum daily grid energy of 110,724.93MWH was different from the peak grid generation (power) of 5,375.0MW attained on February 7, 2019. 

The maximum daily grid energy refers to the quantum of energy that is wheeled from generators to distribution load centers nationwide throughout a whole day (00.00Hrs 24:00Hrs).

This is, it added, measured in Maga Watts Hour, while the peak grid generation, which is a singular reading or high point in grid generation, is measured in megawatts.

It is also evidence that the ongoing Transmission Rehabilitation and Expansion Program (TREP) being executed by TCN is paying off.

The agency noted that the success of TREP is in line with this administration’s incremental power policy and that it is poised to continue to play its role in the power sector value chain as well as ensure that its grid expansion plan is implemented on time.

It added that the implementation of TREP is tied to its twenty year Least Cost Transmission Expansion Master Plan, aimed at systematically expanding the nation’s transmission grid.
