AEDC Declares 800MW Of Carrying Capacity

Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) says it has improved its electricity carrying capacity to 800 mega watts (MW) even as it maintained that it has not been getting anything near its capacity from the national grid, Leadership reports.

The Head of Media and Publicity, Ahmed Shekarau who disclosed this in response to recent claims that point to the distribution companies (DisCos) as the weakest link in the electricity value chain said at no point in time has AEDC gotten up to its capacity from the grid, adding that the DisCo is only entitled to 11.5% of whatever is generated in line with the allocation formula.

Recall that at the 18th monthly meeting of power stakeholders convened by the Hon. Minister of Power, Works and Housing held in Kano recently, the minister, Babatunde Fashola said the greatest challenge on the path of the journey to improved power supply now is the inability of the DisCos take all the power that can go on the grid.
