07 August 2015, Abuja – The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) on Thursday disclosed that it has attained an all-time maximum energy transmission per day of 101,088 megawatt hours (MWH) on the national grid.
TCN said in a statement that was signed its General Manager, Public Affairs, Mrs. Seun Olagunju, that the achievement was recorded on Wednesday, August 5, 2015.
It explained that the previous record of 99,450MWH was attained on October 31, 2014 and that the new feat was achieved with the supervision of its management contractor, Manitoba Hydro International (MHI) which it said had articulated short, medium and long terms grid expansion plans aimed at growing and sustaining improvement in the nation’s transmission grid.
Megawatt hours is translated as one million watts of electricity delivered in one hour while kilowatt hour is one thousand watts of power delivered in one hour.
Kilowatt hours is more commonly used in billing the amount of energy delivered by electricity utilities to end users.
TCN however said that it has continued to pursue these expansion plans vigorously to ensure that its grid expansion goals and timelines are met.
