The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company PLC (EEDC) has explained that the poor power supply currently experienced by its customers across the South East is beyond its control.

In a press release signed by the head of Corporate Communications, EEDC, Mr Emeka Ezeh, the company appealed to customers to bear with them.

The release read: "The situation is due to low energy generation, which has resulted in a drop in power availability.

"The development has resulted in low generation, leading to a reduction in the quantum of daily megawatt hour (MWH) of energy allocated to distribution companies nationwide, thereby impacting the quality of service to its customers.

"We understand the inconveniences this situation has caused our esteemed customers and appeal for their understanding as it is beyond us," Ezeh appealed.

"We can only distribute what is allocated to us.

"Effort is being made by the various stakeholders in the power sector to address this issue, and we hope this yields positive result so that normal distribution would return.

"We remains committed to providing improved services to her esteemed customers".
