The Eko Electricity Distribution Company has said it will begin power rationing today (Tuesday) in Lekki, Ikoyi, Victoria Island and some parts of Ajah, Lagos State.
The company made the announcement on Monday in a statement signed by its General Manager, Corporate Communications, Mr. Godwin Idemudia, saying the rationing would last for one month.
According to Punch, It stated that the power rationing was to enable the Transmission Company of Nigeria to upgrade both line 1 and line 2 of the Ajah-Alagbon transmission line from 132kv to 330kv.
According to the statement, during the upgrade operation, which will last between three and four weeks, the Lekki transmission injection sub-station, from which most of the areas to be affected by the power rationing are fed, will be completely shut down.
The Eko Disco, however, said that to ensure that the areas were not completely out of supply for the duration of the upgrade operation, alternative power supply arrangement would be made through back-feeding operation to the areas from the Alagbon transmission injection sub-station via Ijora.
“While appealing to customers to show understanding and bear with the situation during the period of the facility upgrade, all efforts will be made to ensure equitable distribution of available power to all customers,” the firm stated.
According to the statement, by the time the upgrade work is completed, it will result in tremendous improvement in power supply to all customers in the areas.topics from
