Nigeria Set For 24 Hours Power Supply As Fashola Breaks World Record In Electricity Power Generation

Emerging report indicates that Nigerian’s power generation has returned to the 4,000 megawatts mark following the recovery in the output of hydropower plants and a few thermal plants.

This implies that Nigeria is set for 24 hours power supply, according to experts.
Generation from Kainji, Jebba and Shiroro hydro plants fell to 173MW, 210MW and 205MW, respectively as of 6 am on November 25 from 403MW, 340MW and 295MW on November 23.

The total generation, therefore, dropped from 4,077.8MW on November 23 to 3,662.6MW on November 25, according to the latest data obtained from the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing on Thursday.
But the generation rose to 4,016.1MW from the 3,828.2MW recorded the previous day, buoyed largely by the increase in the output from Kainji, Jebba and Shiroro hydro plants, which generated 382MW, 326MW and 199MW, respectively that day.
Six power plants, including Sapele I and Alaoji II, were not generating any megawatt as of 6 am on November 28. Other idle plants were Gbarain II, AES, ASCO and Rivers IPP, according to the ministry.
