IRREGULAR POWER SUPPLY FROM NEPA AS A PROMOTER OF AIR AND NOISE POLLUTION BY GENERATING PLANTS: AN IMPLICATION TO THE SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT
Irregular power supplies and noise pollution pose significant challenges in the school environment, affecting both students and teachers. The lack of a stable power supply can disrupt classroom activities, hamper the use of electronic devices, and hinder teaching and learning processes. The study aimed to analyze irregular power supply from Nepa as a promoter of air and noise pollution by generating plants: an implication to the school environment. Irregular power supplies in school environments have a direct connection to air pollution, posing numerous challenges. The inadequate and inconsistent availability of electricity leads to an increased reliance on backup power sources like diesel generators, which contribute significantly to air pollution. The study concludes that power supply challenges in the nation, which seem not to be ameliorating, have encouraged the acquisition and utilization of generators in all sectors of the nation's economy. The noise emitting from these generators adversely affects both humans and the environment. Irregular power supply from NEPA and the resulting reliance on generating plants in the school environment can have significant implications for air and noise pollution. The use of generators as a backup power source often leads to the emission of harmful pollutants and excessive noise levels, which can negatively impact the well-being and health of students, staff, and the surrounding community. One of the recommendations made was that Schools should prioritize energy efficiency by implementing measures such as energy-efficient lighting, appliances, and HVAC systems. This can help reduce the overall energy demand and reliance on generators, thus minimizing air and noise pollution.
