Four Electricity Generation Plants Collapse on Fashola

Electricity consumers in Rivers, Bayelsa, Cross River and Akwa Ibom States, have been notified by the Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company, PHED, that the National Power Grid has collapsed.

According to reports, the Head of Corporate Communications of PHED, Jonah Iboma, revealed that the Disco is now receiving zero power from the national grid, as a result of the collapse which occurred on Sunday, 19th June.

He said the implication of the collapse, is that most cities in the four States are now witnessing blackout.

Iboma, added that PHED would source for power from other alternative sources, to mitigate the impact of the collapse of the National Grid on electricity consumers in Rivers, Bayelsa, Cross River and Akwa Ibom States.

He also, said the PHED would distribute the little power it is able to generate from alternative sources within this period to only customers who are willing to pay.

PHED, oversees electricity supply to the four States of Akwa-Ibom, Cross Rivers, Rivers and Bayelsa.

In Rivers State, consumers have started experiencing insufficient power supply, especially in areas that power supply was adequate.
