DisCo laments loss of revenue over blackout in Anambra


The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) has lamented the loss of revenue due to days of outages in many parts of Anambra.

According to NAN, Emeka Ezeh, Head of Corporate Communications at EEDC, disclosed this on Saturday while listing the areas the outage affected: Awka, Onitsha, Ekwulobia and other cities.

The development comes as Awka, the capital town of Anambra and other parts of the state have been out of supply for some days.

Ezeh blamed the outage on a system breakdown at the Transmission Company of Nigeria Station in Onitsha, which was a distribution point for other parts of Anambra.

He said TCN engineers had identified the fault and were already working on it to restore supply while calling EEDC customers to exercise patience.

He said the blackout had occasioned revenue loss of multiple millions and may get to billions if not urgently addressed.

“We highly regret the cut in supply in Anambra; it is a result of loss at the TCN source in Onitsha.

“As a business, EEDC apologises to our numerous customers suffering huge revenue losses, which may run into billions if supply is not restored,” he said.
