RELIEF is underway for residents of the Ishokan Phase 1 Estate, MercyLand Estate, and Mercy Land Phase 1 in Ayobo-Ipaja LCDA as the Ikeja Electric Distribution Company has signed a Tripartite Interconnected Mini-Grid Agreement with Enaro Energy Limited and the community to provide a 24-hour power supply to the aforementioned areas. 

Reports reaching Alimoshotoday state that the initiative is in line with the Nigerian Electricity Regulation Commission’s (NERC) goal of ensuring there is a reliable and steady power supply across communities in the country through partnerships between distribution companies and independent power generators.

The agreement, which was signed at Ikeja Electric’s corporate headquarters in Lagos, will rely on the interconnected mini-grid initiative of the power sector to provide the customers with an uninterrupted power supply.

Speaking during the signing of the agreement, the Chief Finance Officer of Ikeja Electric, Seqinah Adewunmi, who represented the Chief Executive Officer, Folake Soetan, stated that the initiative is a landmark in the history of the power sector in Lagos State, Nigeria, as those communities will be the first to experience uninterrupted power supply in Lagos, via a blend of the grid and off-grid generation and distribution of power.

According to her, “It will demonstrate the possibility that our customers can enjoy 24 hours power supply, which is in line with the core mission of Ikeja Electric to be the provider of choice wherever power is consumed.”

Speaking on behalf of the communities, Baba Agba Lawrence said that despite initial doubts at the early stages of discussion on this project, they were impressed by the level of commitment expressed by Ikeja Electric and Enaro Energy.
