Note: The DisCos in control of these locations may have other technical and commercial considerations, not captured in this model, for the management of the load allocated to them from the grid. In this regard, customers in the locations listed above may experience more or less hours of power supply availability. Also, locations with major technical limitations (E.g., failed or overloaded transformers) may experience far lower hours of supply availability than envisaged by this model.


In general, the hours of power supply availability derived above is based on the assumption that load is distributed evenly among all registered customers.
