Nigeria’s energy generation rises to 89,648MWh

On Monday, May 23rd, 2022, Nigeria generated a total of 89,648.54MWh, a 5.2% increase over the 85,209.68MWh generated the day before. On Monday, power supply jumped by 5.2% to 88,390.76MWh, up from 84,045.52MWh the day before.

This is According to the Nigerian Transmission Company (TCN).
Despite the little increase, Nigeria’s energy generation remains below the 105 kMWh threshold  required for the country’s power supply to be stable.  Nigerians, in particular, continue to suffer from epileptic power supply, with three system outages  thus far in 2022, resulting in extensive blackouts across the country.

Additionally, Nigeria’s energy generation peaked at 3,943.2MW, which is 5.1% higher than the 3,751.1MW peak recorded on Sunday, while off-peak generation rose to 3,424.8MW.
