The national power grid recorded a peak power generation of 5,420.30 megawatts (MW) on Tuesday, the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has said.

A statement by the spokesperson of TCN, Ndidi Mbah, said the recorded peak energy was effectively transmitted through the national grid at a frequency of 50.10Hz at 9:15pm on August 18, 2020.

TCN said it was the highest ever recorded in the nation’s power sector, surpassing the previous peak of 5,377.80MW recorded on the 1st of August, 2020, by 42.50MW.

The gradual but steady improvement in electricity delivery in the nation’s power sector is attributable to the keen interest of the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari in piloting programmes and projects geared towards growing the power sector as well as the collective effort of all power sector players in the value chain, it noted.

TCN also said it was committed to working assiduously to further stabilise, rehabilitate and expand the grid, and urged Nigerians to lend their support by safeguarding electricity installations nationwide.
