GENCOs dismal performance
The recently released report titled: “Performance evaluation report of public sector GENCOs FY14-16” by the power regulator Nepra, has whitewashed the claims made by the government of the brilliant performance of GENCOs. The report actually establishes anything but that.
Most energy experts opine that the role of the government in the power sector is best kept to a minimum. This is not without justification given the poor performance of not only GENCOs, which come under direct control of the government, but also the transmission and distribution sectors whose health is equally dire.
