1. Discos Deny Rejecting Electricity Load From TCN
The association of Nigerian Electricity Distributors (ANED) have put out a statement denying the allegations made by the Transmission Company of Nigeria. TCN claims that the DisCos reject volumes of electricity supplied to them for onward distribution to customers in their distribution networks.
In their defense, ANED’s spokesperson, Mr. Sunday Oduntan, stated that the TCN has frequently misinterpreted energy readings of the Discos by miscalculating drop in electricity demand from customers at night as load rejection.
“The unfair interpretation of off-peak energy data as load rejection is grossly inaccurate and misleading. The occasional times Discos have been unable to distribute energy received are directly due to the inadequate TCN infrastructural interface with the Discos.”
