TCN seeks regulation to protect transmission equipment used by DisCos

The Transmission Company of Nigeria has called for a regulation by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission to protect its transformers in the event of any damage caused by Electricity Distribution Companies.

TCN’s Managing Director, Mohammed Usman, made the call in an interview with journalists in Abuja on Sunday. Mohammed said the inability of the DisCos to invest in their distribution infrastructure had resulted in the use of some of TCN’s transformers by DisCos to supply electricity.

This, he said, had sometimes resulted in the breakdown of the transformers. He said: “Under the grid code, everybody has their responsibility; we have our responsibility; and distribution companies have their responsibility.”
