National Grid Collapse: EEDC restores power supply to South-East states

Power supply was restored to EEDC customers in Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu, and Imo States.

The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) has announced the restoration of electricity supply within all the South-East states, its franchise coverage area.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Head, Corporate Communications, EEDC, Emeka Ezeh, on Monday in Enugu.

Mr Ezeh said that power supply has since commenced in its outgoing feeders, following the restoration of the national grid which collapsed on the evening of June 12.

“However, due to the low energy allocation to EEDC, occasioned by the poor generation, some of our feeders are currently put on system load-shedding by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN).

“We, therefore, thank our esteemed customers in Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu, and Imo States for their support and understanding during the period we lost supply.

“EEDC is assuring them of our continued commitment towards providing improved services,” he said.

Recall that on June 12, at about 6:49 p.m., there was a grid collapse leading to EEDC outgoing feeders being knocked out of electricity supply; which therefore affected supply to the entire South-East states.
