Businesses and homes were left without power for many hours yesterday after the nation’s national grid collapsed twice in less than one month.

The recent collapse came hardly a week after the controversial review of Band A power consumers’ increased tariffs by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, NERC.

The recent collapse happened on Thursday, March 28, 2024, making it the second time in less than one month.

Data supplied by the National System Operator, a semi-autonomous unit in the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, showed that the grid collapsed around 3 a.m.

The Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, was still grappling to restore the grid as supply rose to 250 MW, with Abuja and Lagos Disco having the highest load of 80 MW, Ibadan Disco with 50 MW, and Benin Disco with 40 MW.

The generation trend with plants on the grid had only Ibom Power and Okpai Gas with 59.50 MW and 117.00 MW, respectively.
