The Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) yesterday said it will start rationing electricity to  Lekki, Ikoyi, Victoria Island and some parts of Ajah from today.

In a statement by its General Manager, Corporate Communications Unit, Mr Godwin Idemudia, the EDEDC said the rationing would enable the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) to upgrade Lines 1 and 2 of Ajah-Alagbon transmission line from 132kv to 330kv.

During the upgrade, expected to last between three and four weeks, the Lekki transmission injection sub-station serving those areas would be shut down, the statement said.

“To ensure that the areas are not completely out of supply during the duration of the upgrade, alternative power supply arrangement would be made through back-feeding operation to the areas from Alagbon Transmission injection sub-station via Ijora.

“We appeal to customers to show understanding and bear with the situation during the period of the facility upgrade.

“All efforts will be made to ensure equitable distribution of available power to all customers,” Idemudia said.

The statement said there would be improvement in power supply after the exercise.
