DisCos are to fix faulty transformers, not communities – NERC 

Repairs of faulty transformers are the responsibility of distribution companies (DisCos) and not communities.


This is according to Mr. Tony Essien, the AGM, of Consumer Affairs at the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).  


He said this at the Electricity Consumers Enlightenment and Protection Workshop for staff of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) and the National Orientation Agency (NOA), which came to an end on Wednesday, July 19. Mr. Essien said if transformer repairs are done by any community, they should be repaid by their DisCo.
