Current poor power supply beyond us, says EEDC management


By Tony Oraeki, Awka

The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company, PLC, EEDC, has attributed the current poor power supply as due to low energy generation which has resulted in a drop in power supply availability.

This was disclosed yesterday in the press statement signed by the Head, Corporate Communications, EEDC, Mr Emeka Ezeh, who further appealed to customers across the South East to bear with them for the present ugly situation.

Eze said that the development has led to a reduction in the quantum of daily megawatt hour (MWH) of energy allocated to distribution companies nationwide, thereby impacting the quality of service to its customers.

He stated, “We understand the inconveniences this situation has caused our esteemed customers and appeal for their understanding as it is beyond us.

“We can only distribute what is allocated to us.

“Effort is being made by the various stakeholders in the power sector to address this issue, and we hope this yields positive results so that normal distribution would return.

“EEDC remains committed to providing improved services to her esteemed customers.” Eze noted.
