This is according to information from the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN).

Similarly, the energy supply dipped significantly by 18.84% to 67,790.MWh on Sunday, 12th June 2022 compared to 83,524.39MWh sent out by the generating companies on Saturday.

Meanwhile, energy generation


peaked at 3,703MW on Sunday, while off-peak was 9MW. Notably, 98.45% of the generated energy in the day under review was sent out to Distributing Companies.

Highlight (12th June 2022)

  • Peak generation – 3,703MW (+0.48%)
  • Off-peak generation – 9MW (-99.73%)
  • Energy generated – 68,856.37MWh (-18.76%)
