Statistical method of the least squares was used in long term load growth forecast based on retrospective load growth
data (2003-2023) for Akure 132kV Injection substation. Growth trend was established and the smoothening of the
actual growth dynamics was achieved by applying moving averages. The load growth trend line equations obtained
enable the determination of load forecast estimate up to 2023. It was inferred from the results that the load growth
forecast estimate for transformers, T1A, T2A, T3A and FUTA line are 19.24MW, 28.02MW, 45.02MW and 1.05MW
respectively for a period of ten yea
