As part of continued efforts to ensure its customers enjoy improved and reliable power distribution within its network, Eko Electricity Distribution Plc (EKEDP) has concluded plans to acquire up to 474MW of Power directly into its network in an unprecedented embedded power generation initiative which will more than double its current allocation from the national grid.
The Embedded Generation Program involves the construction of smaller sized plants in generating electricity that is connected to and evacuated through the distribution network infrastructure.
The proximity of these smaller sized plants to load centres within various communities will further assist EKEDP in alleviating some of the current challenges being experienced by unclogging its transmission grid of bottlenecks amongst other notable issues.
The program which has been submitted to the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) for approval will go a long way in alleviating the shortage of power supply from the grid which has been rather unstable and epileptic in recent times.
To this intent, EKEDP extended invitation bids to budding power generating companies and in return, received over 50 letters of interest. Read more
