Low Current: AEDC Lists Reasons For Electricity Load Shedding


The Management of Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) on Thursday listed reasons for the load shedding being experienced in its franchise area.
This is contained in a statement signed by Head, Public Relations and Media of AEDC Mr Ahmed Shakarau, in Abuja on Thursday.
The statement listed drop in the load allocated to AEDC by the System Operator as the cause of the load shedding.
It stated that AEDC’s explanation was coming on the heels of the recent drop in power supply to its customers in its area of operation.
It listed the areas to include the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Kogi, Nasarawa and Niger.
The statement stated that the recent drop in electricity generation was also caused by shortage in gas to power plants and the quantum of energy made available to AEDC from the National Grid.
It added that the quantum of energy made available to the company had fallen far short of what it had been receiving a few months ago.
It stated that when there was limited power available, load shedding to its customers in the FCT and other states in the company’s franchise area became inevitable.
The statement added that AEDC appealed for the understanding of its customers over the recent developments.
It assured that it had never failed to distribute the load allocated to it by the System Operator since November 2013 when the current management took over the company.
It explained further that it had been taking load in excess of its allocation every month to meet customers’ demand.
It stated that AEDC appealed to customers that it would continue to optimise its load shedding to ensure that they were given fair consideration in distribution of energy allocated to it.
