Nigeria is now generating 4,349.7 megawatts, the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), said on Wednesday in Abuja.
This is contained in a statement signed by Dave Ifabiyi, the Assistant General Manager, Public Affairs of TCN.
The statement said the figure represented an increase of 28.40mw over the 4,321.3MW peak that was achieved on Friday, August 31.
It said that the new generation peak was achieved as a result of improved gas supply and the newly commissioned generating units at the National Integrated Power Projects (NIPP) thermal power stations in Omotosho and Olorunsogo.
The statement also attributed the success achieved to the efforts of engineers in the generation, transmission and distribution companies.
It further said that TCN would be collaborating with power generation companies to improve on the achievement with a view to attaining the generation target of 4,500 MW projected for the year.
The statement appealed to the public to reciprocate “this gesture by protecting all transmission facilities in their communities and ensure that they pay their electricity bills, in order to sustain the achievement’’.
