Management of AEDC has explained the poor elelctricity supply in some districts in the Federal capital Territory (FCT) Abuja is a result of loadshedding.
Newsmen report that loadshedding is an action to reduce the load on something, especially the interruption of an electricity supply to avoid excessive load on the generating plant.
Several customers in parts of the city have experienced poor supply in recent times following the action by AEDC.
According to a statement by Oyebode Fadipe, the Public Relations Officer of AEDC, districts most affected include Kubwa, Diedie, Lower Usman Dam, Bwari, Dutse, Dawaki, 3rd Avenue, 69 Road, 64 Road, 62 Road, Gwarinpa, Sunshine Estate, Map Global Estate, I pent Estate, Queens Estate.
Others are Kafe Gardens 1, 2&3. Efab Estate, Home Security Estate, Fine Estate, Macopoli Estate, Marine Estate, Adkan Estate, Verozone Estate, Justice Estate, Davis Estate and Police Estate.
AEDC said the loadshedding was occasioned by the fault on one of the 60MVA transformers at the TCN 2 x 60MVA station at Kubwa, Abuja.
While acknowledging that the TCN enforced loadshedding has the potential of disrupting the socio-economic activities of its customers as well as its own obligations towards the market, AEDC said it is working with the TCN on how to speedily resolve the issue especially because of the onset of the dry season, which it says will have serious effects on the comfort of the customers.
AEDC therefore appeals to all affected customers to please bear with it is working assiduously with the TCN to ensure the restoration of normal power supply to the affected customers.
