When Loss Reduction Projects Tends to Loss Increasing…

Astronomical  clocks, unlike photocells, control street  lighting based on  time of sunrise and sunset which  is calculated based on  latitude and longitude of  the  street. This equipment has a  main advantage in respect to photocell which is reducing on-time and off-time errors caused by contamination of the opaque cover of the photocell.

In inspecting one of the pilot projects, accidentally i turned my  thermal imaging camera on one of  these astronomical clocks (which was installed in the distribution substation) and saw the below image!

This picture reminds me a report that has presented in a loss reduction conference in Madagascar island . In this report, noted that after two years of  executing loss reduction projects  in an African country , studies show that energy losses increased 1% !!!!!!!


A new age in electricity theft

May targeted subsidies in electricity sector result more non-technical losses?
