Daily generation of the national electricity grid has sustained 3,000 megawatts (mw) for 20 days in July, dailytrust reports.

The grid maintained between 3,000mw to 3,300mw for those days, however, generation dropped to as low as 773mw for the remainder of days during the period.

Report from the Nigerian System Operator (NSO) shows a significant improvement from the 87mw lowest generation recorded in June.

The highest generation during the past one month was 3,332mw, attained on July 12, 2016.  The generation reached 3,094mw on August 1, and remained at 3,061mw yesterday. 

About 70,081megawatt hour (mwh) was dispatched by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) for distribution to homes last Monday. It was a significant improvement in energy delivery from the previous figures that fell lower than 40,000mwh.

Weekly report frotm the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC)  showed that energy not distributed on July 31 was 4,662mw as only 45 turbine units worked while 44 others were available but not fired.

The major challenge to the loss in energy remained the shortage of gas supply as other constraints like water level as they no longer affect generation
