FG Set to Provide DisCos with Policy Plan for Unutilised Power


The Federal Government said, yesterday, that it was putting together a policy position that will help expand the distribution network of Distribution Companies (DisCos), to evacuate the stranded 2,000 megawatts of electricity and make them available to Nigerians, Vanguard reports.

The Minister of Works, Power, and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, who disclosed this at the 23rd monthly meeting with operators in the power sector hosted by the Nasarawa State government and Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC), regretted the 2000MW of electricity that is currently available but which cannot be distributed.

The minister, while challenging Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN), on the stranded megawatts, said: “I also use this opportunity to call out to manufacturers to let us know where they are, how much power they need and how we can connect you because we have 2000 MW of undistributed power.”
