The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) has directed the Distribution Companies (DisCos) to ensure that electricity consumers are metered

The regulatory body directed that all DisCos should ensure that all customers on tariff class A1 in their franchise areas were properly identified and metered by April 30.“The customer shall remain connected to supply without further payment to the DisCos until a meter is installed on the premises under the framework work of MAP Regulations.

“However, the actual amount payable shall vary in the event of any approved tariff reviews affecting their customer class,” it stated.“All unmetered RS and C1 customers shall not be invoiced for the consumption of energy beyond the cap stipulated in schedule 1 of this order.

It stated that if the DisCos failed to comply affected customers would no longer liable to pay any estimated bill issues by Discos.“Any customer on such higher tariff classes not metered beyond April 30 shall remain connected to supply without further payment to the DisCos until a meter is installed on the premises under the framework of Meter Asset Provider (MAP) regulations or any other financing arrangement approved by the commission.

It stated that such would only be reconnected to the network with the installation of a meter.
