Nigeria Sharing Electricity with Burkina Faso
Sunday December 2, 2018  Printer Friendly Email this article

Nigeria plans to supply electricity to Burkina Faso to help relieve the neighboring country of its energy deficit. This information was reported by Lamu Audu, the executive director of Mainstream Solutions Limited, which operates the Kainji and Jebba hydroelectric plants.

According to the manager, this decision is motivated by the high level of rejection of electricity generation by generation companies, which have no choice but to turn to other buyers for the part of their production not taken into account by the Nigerian power grid. Audu explained that as far as his company is concerned, only 600 to 650 MW of electricity is being bought by distribution companies (DisCos) out of 922 MW.
