Udom petitions PHEDC at NERC
Udom’s action may not be unconnected with complaints of electricity consumers in the state of PHEDC’s poor power supply despite huge bills sent to them arising from estimated billing system.
In his petition, the governor said there was sufficient power generation from the Ibom Power Plant to provide steady electricity to the entire state, but PHEDC has refused to pick the load.
In execution of its quasi-judicial function, Section 46 of the Electric Power Sector Reform (EPSR) Act 2005 empowers NERC to conduct hearings following petitions from aggrieved persons in accordance with Rule 14 of NERC Business Rules 2006.
Consequently, it has invited the PHEDC for a hearing on the matter.
