152

For the fourth time in 2024, Nigeria’s power grid has collapsed, with the country’s electricity generation plummeting to a mere 0.80 megawatts.

The power generation started to decline around 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 6, dropping from an average of 3,417.99 megawatts at 1 p.m. to 2,797.16 megawatts by 2 p.m., according to the Independent System Operator (ISO), an autonomous arm of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN). The situation worsened further, with electricity contribution falling to 1,020.08 megawatts by 3 p.m., and then dramatically to just 0.80 megawatts by 4 p.m.

During this period, the Trans-Amadi Power Plant was the only plant generating power, contributing a meager 0.80 megawatts to the grid.

This marks the fourth collapse of Nigeria’s power grid in 2024, highlighting the ongoing challenges in the country’s power sector.
