The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) with the Ministry of Works, Power and Housing had in 2017 decided to site a 132/33KVA substation at Ilashe.

The project, according to the Minister, was deemed important because of the socio-economic benefit it portends for the growth of the community.

Fashola, disclosed that the location of Ilashe and its sister communities between the lagoon and the ocean make it a prime candidate for expansion/growth of tourism in Lagos and indeed Nigeria, provided there is adequate power supply.
