Total power generation fell to 3,922.2MW as of 6am on Sunday from 4,394MW on Saturday, according to data obtained from the Nigerian Electricity System Operator.

Eleven of the power plants on the national grid did not generate any megawatts of electricity as of 6am on Sunday.

The idle plants included six of those built under the National Integrated Power Project, namely Geregu II, Sapele II, Olorunsogo, Omotosho, Ihovbor, and Gbarain. The others were Afam IV&V, Ibom Power, AES, ASCO and Egbin ST6.

The data showed that generation capacity of 2,830.7MW could not be utilised as of 6am on Sunday as a result of gas constraints, low load demand by the distribution companies and water management.
