‘Don’t Pay For Electricity After 2 Weeks Of Outage’ – NERC Tells Nigerians

The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, NERC, has asked Nigerians not to pay for meter service charge and the electricity bill if there is outage for more than two weeks.
NERC said that the Meter Asset Provider (MAP) regulation has stopped the electricity Distribution Companies from collecting energy and service charges after two weeks of power outage.

Its chairman, Prof. James Momoh, broke the news at the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) launch of the MAP in Abuja on Friday.

The General Manager, Finance and Management Services, Abudukadir Shetima, who represented the Chairman, said that with the MAP regulation, the meters must be installed not later than 10 days after payment.

According to him, should the DisCo refuse to replace a malfunctioning meter after two days, the customer is not expected to make any payment. He said that NERC, DisCos and the customers have their deadline to provide the meters to the customers at the required time.

He said the regulation was designed in a manner that regards the consumer as the king in the Nigeria Electricity Supply Industry (NESI) value chain. The customer, he said, is expected to have the best services.
