The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has disclosed that the 11 electricity distribution companies (Discos) have not stopped the practice of rejecting generated electricity loads allocated and sent to them for onward distribution to customers in their distribution networks, ThisDay reports.
The Executive Director, Finance and Accounts, TCN, Mr. Sunny Iroche, said this to journalists on the sidelines of a recent market participants workshop in Abuja.
He indicated that the load rejection practices of the Discos often made the TCN to direct power generation companies (Gencos) to reduce the quantum of electricity they generate.
“We do this because generation must balance utilisation and that is very important to avoid collapse of the system,” Iroche said.
