-Vanguard Newspaper,  April 24, 2014   By Chris Ochayi

The Federal Government claimed…, that the country’s generation capacity has picked up, hitting 4,105.90 megawatts as at Tuesday, this week.

This was even as the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, NERC, approved and signed into law the rules for the interim period between completion of privatisation and the start of the Transitional Electricity Market, TEM.

Special Assistant, Media, to the Minister of Power, Prof. Chinedu Nebo,  Kande Daniel, in a statement in Abuja, said the current generation status was arrived at after Grid Information was released early, Wednesday.

She said Nigeria’s power generation is coming up again with the current generated megawatts, hitting over 4,000 as at Tuesday.

The release further reveals a breakdown of how generated capacity was shared, with the industrial nerve-centre, Lagos and environs, getting the highest, a maximum load totaling 985.0mw, while the maximum load allocated to Abuja through Katampe and Gwagwalada power line was 410.80mw.

The nation’s generation capacity as at early Wednesday, stood at 3,795.30mw, and figures for the past few days indicate an averaging of about 3,800mw.

The statement, however, re-affirms government’s resolve to consolidate efforts at removing all bottlenecks to sufficiency in power supply.
