Mommas Systems Nigeria Limited Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Kolawole Balogun has said that the Nigerian industrial sector should not be suffering from poor power supply because the transmission company in Nigeria has enough power to supply to consumers.
He however said the problem is that the transformers in place now do not have the capacity to carry the amount of power required by the consumers.
He said: “Technically speaking, power transmission companies have enough electricity to supply to consumers through the distribution companies routed through transformers. However, most current transformers in place cannot withstand the amount of power required by the consumers.”
He suggested that electricity marketing companies should be separate and independent of the distribution companies (Discos).
According to him, Discos are overwhelmed doing the job of distribution and marketing. The marketing companies should not be organs of the DISCOs. But should be separate organizations that are accredited by government for this specific service.
The marketers, he postulated, will be in a symbiotic relationship with the manufacturers of meters for supply, installation and monitoring.
