Electricity generation in Nigeria hits all time new peak



ELECTRICITY generation into the nation’s national grid appeared to be on an upward trajectory as it hit a new-all time peak of 4,656 megawatts (mw) as of yesterday from the 4,545 mw it recorded on Monday.

Despite this feat in Nigeria, the Africa Progress Panel 2015 report foresees electricity coming to all homes and businesses in Africa by 2080. The report also estimated that an investment of $55 billion would be needed yearly to achieve universal access.

This increase in power generation was attributed to an increased capacity in the nation’s national grid from Egbin Power Plant, the Omotosho NIPP and improvement in gas supply.
