AEDC alerts on power interruption in parts of Abuja

The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) has said customers in some parts of Abuja will have interruption in electricity supply to their homes, offices and other areas of activities from Tuesday to Thursday.

In a statement by the General Manager, Corporate Communications, Bode Fadipe, the interruption is to enable the maintenance crew of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) re-string the vandalised portion of the 132 kilovolt (kV) transmission line that evacuates energy from the Gwagwalada transmission station to Apo and Kukwaba transmission stations within the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

“In order to cushion the effect of the three days interruption, AEDC has worked out modalities to back feed some of the affected areas, where possible.

“This will, however, engender a load shedding regime since existing nearby feeders will be saddled with more loads that they hitherto were not carrying,” it said.

The affected areas include Utako, Wuye, Human Rights Radio, Suncity Estate, Galadimawa, Kabusa Garden, Idu Industrial, and Idu Railway Station.

The rest are Open University, CITEC Mbora Estate, Durumi, Games Village, Lugbe Across, Pyakassa, Chika, Kunchinhoro, and Brains & Hammer.

AEDC, in the statement, appealed to customers for understanding while saying the 132kV Gwagwalada to Kukuaba line when repaired will help to optimise power supply to the customers.
