hi guys, i recently watched it on television that ten new power stations are already in completion stages. by december 2007 i guess the light would be stable since 10,000megawatts will be generated from them.

my supply is both cheap and good.

i hardly ever have a break in service.

and when there is a break its usually maintenance.

and that is like 10 - 20 min in duration.

I recently gathered from the media that the Egbin Thermal station in 2005 slashed its 1500MW electricity capacity to about 900MW. But as at today it has been slashed to 100MW. Then it was reported that we should expect highly eratic power supply in and around the Lagos metropolis.

I now thought to myself that if in 2005 when the station's capacity was still high we did not get the power, only God knows what eratic power supply now will look like.

Faith without prayer, what could that bring. The religious groups are not in harmony. There is one thing i know, there are saints who are praying 4 Nigeria and God will answer in his own time.

I remember when they took light here in Canada

Summer of 2003, people were pannicking like mad

I really enjoyed seeing people acting so odd, back home it has been accepted as a norm

Maybe Nigeria should invest in Nuclear or WindPower as alternatives

power supply in my area is extremely constant. infact almost 24hrs a day. outages dont last more than 10 mins. and these are far in between. atimes we go on days without an outage.

and of couirse i live in naija, dont use a gen cos i dont ve need for one. i gave out the one i was using in  lag cos there was no need for one in my new station.

but just this wek all dat changed and we started having outages lasting up to 2 hours. thou i believe this it will fizzle out n return bak to status quo if shell finishes the maintainance on their power station that was shut down

Nigeria supplies electricity to its neighbouring countries, which the river Niger passes through.

This is because if these countries construct their own Dams, we would not have enough water pressure for our Niger Dam to function.

Similarly, Ghana's Volta River Authority (VRA), which produces nearly all of Ghana's electric power also supplies electricity to a number of neighbouring West African countries.

So dont be dismayed that we supply these nations.

I went to nigeria for the Xmas break and i was amazed, we had light everyday, throughout my saty of 5 weeks, they only took the light about 3-4 times and it lasted for about 8-10 min each, i think they have greatly improved.

funny but realistic

if u talking about countries that ve regualr power suply, u dont ve to mention Ni, talkless of NIgeria.

having light once in 3months doesnt woth it, the least i can do is to on the Gen, what about the fuel, selling fuel 130 per littre.

I get light 24 hrs/day

On very rare occasions (like 1nce in 6 months), when there's no light, it normally lasts for 5-10 mins max.

And there's nothing like half or low current/voltage, watever

Na wao, strangely, I used to miss Naija for the erratic supply of electricity because it was fun playing under the moon at night with my friends. Not anymore. 100k for diesel? Seriously, how much are you even earning a month to afford such a collosal amount of money for diesel alone? I am not surprised to read that Naija supplies electricity to some African countries. Naija Govt's priorities have always been misplaced, for as long as I can remember.

Power situation is quite fair in my area of Lagos, on the average we have 18 hours of electricity per day, but since November i fixed an alternative power solution[Inverter] because i now work from home, its noiseless, fumeless and cost effective.

It's not just Benin Republic

Other neighbouring countries get supplied Electricity from Nigeria.

It's called money and politics

Some African "countries" are only as large as Nigerian towns and we probably supply electricity to their capitals only.

Is it true that Nigeria is exporting electricity to some African country ??

Last year was very pathetic. In my home, we usually spent about N100,000 per month on diesel alone!

I thank God they improved this year. We've been having light for a minimum of 12 hrs per day, and about 18 - 22 hrs maximum since this year began. But since the beginning of this week (Sunday), it's been a different story entirely. We only have light for like 6 - 10 hrs everyday. Even right now as I type, we're on generator.

I just hope they come back to their senses fast.

I have a place in Lagos. Its empty for most of the year, but yet I am made to pay N15,000 per month for electricity.

Is this normal for VGC? There's is no meter on the road, and it appears that they are stalling because the meter installation would greatly reduce my bill.

Power supply in my area is almost non existent. just imagine, we have power for an average of 2hrs a day n We're talkin of industrialization, I think our country's greatest setback are its citizens followed closely by almost zero power supply

When i leave for work by 6.00am, there's usually power. And i hear it runs throughout the day except for 1 or 2 hours. However, when i get back from work say around 7.00pm, theres never power. And we stay in the dark until say 1.00am the next day. Weekends are usually without power supply. In other words, When theres power, I am never at home. When I am at home, theres never power. Thats the story of my life. By the way, my bill is about N2500 monthly.

My only problem with running a generator is the noise. Electricity shouldn't be free. The expense can be reduced by disconnecting unecessary electrical appliances and using efficient gadgets like flourescent lights.

The power supply in my area is pathetic - it comes on briefly only during the evening. But the powers that be in my place of residence have insisted that I mustn't buy a petrol generator, so I have to manage my 6 hour inverter.

No power to get on internet so Nigerians can't post

Anyway its prolly non existent here. I run on Generator for most part of the day and its not funny at all. Very expensive.

I pay my taxes, light bill, never give bribe to meter readers, or mess with my meter, and that's why I have constant power.
