From August 28 to September 2, clients in the states of Plateau, Bauchi, and Gombe, according to Jos Electricity Distribution (JED).
The company has said that the outage would occur between the hours of 9 AM and 5 PM.
The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) issued a statement on Saturday in Jos from the office of its Head of Corporate Communications, Dr. Friday Elijah, explaining that the outage was scheduled so that its Local Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contractors could make installations.
Statement: “The planned outage by TCN is to enable its EPCC contractors to safely connect the gantry beam of the new APO line to the existing Lafia line-Jos 330kv double circuit.”
Since the 330KV Jos complex will continue to get its power via the Kaduna-Jos 330KV line, the report predicted that load shedding will grow during that time.
The message urged customers to hang in there and understand that the company is committed to rectifying the situation and providing better service in the future.
