The Nigeria Electricity Supply Industry (NESI) says technical losses experienced on July 26 reduced to 70MW, The Nation reports.
According to NESI on its website, the power sector has been able to maintain 0MW management water constraint in the past one month.
However, the improvement in electricity generation, culminated in the supply of 3,003MW to the 11 electricity distribution companies (DisCos).
According to the data from the Nigerian System Operator (NSO) website of the Transition Company of Nigeria (TCN), which allocates loads, energy sent out was 2928MW to the DisCos, which resulted in 75MW increase in power supply.
But the gas constraint of 4,302MW, remained unchanged on the day under review. Estimated equivalent losses that the NESI recorded on June 26 was worth N2,125, 000, 000, according to the data.
Data from NESI said, “On July, 26 2016, average power sent out was 3003MWh/hour (up by 75 MWh/h). The reported gas constraint was 4302MW. The reported line constraint was 70MW. The water management constraint was 0MW. The power sector lost the estimated equivalent of N2,125,000,000 on July 26, 2016 due to constraints.”
However, on the previous day on NESI website, “on July 25, 2016, average power sent out was 2928MWh/hour (up by 26 MWh/h). The reported gas constraint was 4302MW.
‘’The reported constraint was 224MW. The water management constraint was 0MW. The power sector lost the estimated equivalent of N2,172,000,000 on July 25,” it said
