DERC doesn’t care about Poor Quality of Maintenance – local fault in a home and entire 11 KV feeder is switched off. On June18 when I visited South District Police Head Quarter less than a kilometer for DERC Office at 11:30AM to view CCTV – not more than 200m from back side of the complex to BRPL RBI Complaint Center – there was no electricity in the entire complex.
Energy Meters installed since 2004 are All Smart Meters with Two Way Infra Red or Ethernet Communication but Without Wireless Two Way Communication. These meters record all the parameters programmed by DISCOMS, and Data can be EXTRACTED any time by Reading Devices.
DERC is allowing Replacement of 6m or more Meters which shall Cost Rs.3000 Cr or More – annual cost of Maintaining Communication Network could be Rs.600 Cr @ Rs.1000 Per Meter – could be much more.
DERC believes Every Consumer is a ‘Thief’ and Needs to be MONITORED 24X7 Basis. NDPL/BRPL/BYPL should first install Smart Meters on Distribution Meters. DERC favors Grid Connected Solar than Off-Grid Solar.
‘Maintenance, Energy Efficiency & Uninterrupted Power Should Be Priority.
NDPL, BRPL & BYPL Refused to install Computerized Meters on all 8000 Distribution Transformers – actually 5600 DB Transformer had no Energy Meters like ones installed for Consumers until 2006 after repeated petitioning over 2 years.
BRPL get no idea about TRIPPING of Distribution Transformers or even 11 KV Feeders.
BRPL take 4 hrs shutdown to clean Transformers, or 4 hrs to replace Faulty Circuit Breaker.
BRPL doesn’t even have Full Length ‘Bamboo Ladders’ that are brought to site of faults on Hand Cart. Staff don’t even have Basic Tools and Safety Equipment like GLOVES or HELMETS. They are basically Unskilled Labor.
Delhi has installed just 8925 Energy Efficient Ceiling Fans – not even 0.5%. Each Efficient Fan is to save 0.4 Units per day – 145 units annually. Just 10m shall save over 1.45 Billion Units at Consumer End – 1.7 BU as Energy Input.
Delhi has over about 20m Tube-lights – only 1,06,950 LED Tube-lights are replaced.
Delhi has distributed 89,70,701 LED Lamps or 2 LED Lamps per Domestic consumer – 27,76,839 to Non Domestic Consumers.
