The Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, hereby has informed electricity consumers in Sokoto State and environs that it is set to reconductor the overloaded Sokoto – Birnin Kebbi 132kV Single Circuit Transmission Line with high capacity transmission cable that would enable TCN increase bulk power transmission to distribution load centers in Sokoto State and environs.

According to the company, the new line when completed, would enable the Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company deliver more electricity to its customers in Sokoto axis, to solve the prevalent poor power supply situation in the area.

“Over the years, the Sokoto – Birnin Kebbi 132kV transmission line, had become overloaded due to massive increase in human population and attendant socio-economic development in the area.

“The reconductoring work would rectify the current low voltage and consequent poor power situation so that electricity consumers can enjoy more stable and quality power supply.

“TCN will commence the reconductoring work on the 130 Kilometers Sokoto – Birnin Kebbi Single Circuit Transmission line this week and would complete the project by the third week of December, 2020.

“To ameliorate the effect of scheduled outages on electricity customers during the period, TCN will work from 8am to 5pm daily, during which time there would be no supply of electricity to the affected areas. Electricity supply would however be restored daily, from 6pm to 8am.

“We apologize for every inconvenience and solicit the support and understanding of the state governor and good people of Sokoto State as well as the Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company, to enable us successfully execute this project which will greatly improve power supply in Sokoto State and environs”, the General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah said in a statement.
