FOR the second time within a month, the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, has issued another suspension order to Kano Electricity Distribution Company, KEDCO. The suspension order, which took effect from Tuesday, August 6 was issued on KEDCO for not paying May invoice in full.
TCN announced the suspension order on its twitter handle @TCN Nigeria on Wednesday, August 7. The Nigerian Electricity Market Operator said the non payment of the invoice in full was a default in the market conditions/market participation agreements.
It could be recalled that TCN had on July 21, issued suspension and disconnection orders to KEDCO from the electricity grid. According to TCN, the suspension order was as a result of KEDCO’s default in the Market Conditions/Market Participation Agreements.
It will be recalled also that in the last few weeks suspension and disconnection orders had been issued against Port-Harcourt, Enugu, Eko and Ikeja Discos over the same allegations of infraction of market rules.
TCN has, however, lifted the suspension on Enugu, Eko and Ikeja Discos after they complied with the market conditions/participation agreement, while Port-Harcourt Disco was still on suspension.
