#NigeriaMessyPower Sector
-Gas producers are private sector owned, under yoke of FG fiat over gas prices to GENCOS
-Gencos partially owned by FG and private investors
-#NBET that owns the national grid is 100% FG owned
-Transmission Coy of Nigeria or TCN is owned by FG
-DISCOS partially owned by FG and private investors
-Customers owing DISCOS
-DISCOS owing NBET
-NBET owing GENCOS
-GENCOS owing gas producers
#TCN doesn't have enough capacity to transmit all power generated by GENCOS
-DISCOS charges customers estimated billing to make up for power theft, debtors etc
-Gas companies ship gas overseas at competitive prices for $$ revenues
-NBET sells some power to neighbouring countries for rev for FG
-Thousands of MW generated for NBET cannt be taken up by TCN
-DISCOS fuming they cannot raise tariff locked down by FG
-TCN infrastructure inadequate and poor; no enough investments by FG that refuses to privatise it
-National grid or centralised power system is a monolith that FG finds difficult to let go
-Downstream, DISCOS and consumers in constant face-off over meters, transforners, power cables, electricity poles, etc.
-No clear-cut structure of who owns what power asset, repairs, replacement, etc.
-DISCOS upset with @NERCNG over licensing of new Meter Asset Providers or MAP
-MAP hamstrung by funding and no clear cut business relationship with DISCOS and consumers
The more I learn about the state of Nigeria's electricity transition market or industry, the more unhappy I become, in particular about the power distribution companies or DISCOs - poor/inexperienced marketers, account/field offiers, etc.
DISCOs'
-Know-Your-Customer (KYC) or territory not up to speed
-Customers' enumeration at low level
-Poor electricity industry knowledge or skill among officers/staffers
-Poor public information/communication engagements
