Jos Electricity Distribution (JED) says its customers in Plateau, Bauchi and Gombe states will experience power outages from August 28 to September 2.
The organisation said the planned outage will last from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m..
In a statement issued by its Head, Corporate Communications, Dr Friday Elijah, on Saturday in Jos, the organisation explained that the planned outage by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) was to enable its Local Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractors to make installations.
According to the 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.”
It noted that there would be an increase in load shedding during the period as the 330KV Jos complex will remain on supply via Kaduna-Jos 330KV line.
The statement, therefore, appealed to the customers to be patient and bear with the situation, stressing that the company is determined to improve services.
