How defects in 10 TCN substations plunged Lagos into darkness


Around 10 transmission substations in Nigeria's commercial capital are found to be defective, exacerbating the plight of electricity consumers, as generation capacity continues to decline and power rationing continues across Nigeria.

Due to gas shortages, Nigeria's electricity production is currently at an all-time low of about 3,000 megawatts.

Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company (IE) yesterday announced that most of its substations have been shut down, plunging most of its franchise area further into darkness.

According to the power company, Oworo Transmission Substation (TS), Maryland TS, Itire TS, Isolo TS, Ogba TS, Alausa TS, Ejigbo TS, Alimosho TS, Ilupeju TS and Ayobo TS are all affected.

The company said there is load shedding at its various transmission centers, adding that this situation has led to various customers across the state currently experiencing difficulties with service.

“We apologize for the inconvenience. The company is actively working with relevant stakeholders to restore normal operations,” the company said in a circular.
