Current poor power supply in S’East beyond our powers – EEDC


The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company, EEDC, has said that the poor power supply currently experienced across the South-East is beyond its powers.

The company attributed the situation to low energy generation, which has resulted in a drop in power supply availability generally.

The Head, Corporate Communications, EEDC, Mr Emeka Ezeh, made this disclosure in a statement on Monday.

Ezeh, however, urged residents of the zone to bear with the company.

He said the development has resulted in low generation, leading 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.

“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,” he said.

According to him, efforts were 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 will return”.
