The Nigeria Electricity Supply Industry (NESI) said it reduced technical losses experienced on July 26 to 70MW.
According to the firm on its website, the sector has been able to maintain 0MW management water constraint in the past one month.
The improvement in power generation, however, culminated in the supply of 3,003MW to the 11 electricity distribution companies (DisCos).
The Nigerian System Operator (NSO) of the Transition Company of Nigeria (TCN), which allocates loads, sent out 2928MW to the DisCos, resulting in 75MW increase in power supply.
Following the data, estimated equivalent losses that the NESI recorded on June 26 was worth N2,125, 000, 000.
It said: “On July, 26 2016, average power sent out was 3003MWh/hour (up by 75 MWh/h). The reported gas constraint was 4302MW. The reported line constraint was 70MW. The water management constraint was 0MW. The power sector lost the estimated equivalent of N2,125,000,000 on July 26, 2016 due to constraints.”
NESI the previous day noted that “on July 25, 2016, average power sent out was 2928MWh/hour (up by 26 MWh/h). The reported gas constraint was 4302MW.
‘’The reported constraint was 224MW. The water management constraint was 0MW. The power sector lost the estimated equivalent of N2,172,000,000 on July 25.
