The management of Abuja Electricity Distribution Company AEDC has released a statement revealing the cause of the power outage being experienced by some of its customers in some areas of its service reach.
This will affect the supply of electricity to Abuja Steel, Suleja town, Sabon Wuse, Maje, Diko, Kwamba, Rafin Sanyi, Hassan Dalhatu, Madalla, Dakwa, Gauraka, and Zuba.
Time Of Outage:
The outage will occur from Tuesday to Thursday, 26th – 28th of September, 2017
Reason for Outage:
An upgrade of the transformer at the Suleja 132/33KV Substation. The Transmission Company of Nigeria(TCN) has arranged to shut down the existing 45MVA transformer to enable it to upgrade to a 60MVA transformer.
Notwithstanding the upgrade work by TCN, however, we will be optimizing load to ensure that the affected areas get some level of supply of electricity during the period.
We, therefore, appeal for the patience and understanding of the affected customers during this period as this exercise by the TCN is intended to improve power supply to them.
