Four States to Experience Blackout Tuesday – TCN

Communities in Adamawa, Jos, Taraba and Gombe states will experience four-hour power outages on Tuesday.

The Transmission Company of Nigeria disclosed this on Monday in a statement signed by its Public Affairs General Manager, Ndidi Mbah.

According to Mbah, the outages would occur because the TCN maintenance crew would test and inaugurate the new 330kV Red Phase current transformer at Gombe Transmission Substation from 9am to 1pm on Tuesday.

As a result, Mbah noted that the Jos and Yola electricity distribution companies will be unable to supply electricity to their customers within Gombe, Biu, Potiskum, Yola, Savannah, Jalingo, Mayo-Belwa and Damaturu towns within the four-hour.

While regretting the inconveniences the outages may cause electricity consumers within the affected areas, the TCN emphasised that maintenance was important to ensure power installations are in good condition.

The statement read, “The maintenance crew of the Transmission Company of Nigeria will test and commission the new 330kV Red phase current transformer at Gombe Transmission Substation from 9am to 1pm on Tuesday, February 27, 2024.

“Regrettably, Jos Disco and Yola DisCos will be unable to supply electricity to its customers within Gombe, Biu, Potiskum, Yola, Savannah, Jalingo, Mayo-belwa and Damaturu towns in four hours.

“We regret any inconveniences this may cause electricity consumers within the affected areas. Please note that these maintenances are important to make sure equipment is in good condition in order to supply bulk electricity to consumers.”

The country has been grappling with a low power supply occasioned by gas constraints for two months ago.
