NERC AND DISCOS TRADE BLAMES ON METERING
Written by thereachfm on March 26, 2019
The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission says the obligation to ensure that all electricity consumers have meters remains with the electricity distribution companies under Meter Asset Provider Regulations (MAP) 2018.
While reacting to a statement by the Association of Nigerian Electricity Distributors, the umbrella body for the Discos, NERC noted that Section 4 of the MAP Regulation required that all distribution licensees should engage the services of meter asset providers towards meeting the metering targets .
The statement added that the Discos were expected to commence the provision of meters within 120 days of coming into effect of the regulations.
Meanwhile, the commission said the deadline was fixed for July 31, 2018 however was extended to November 30, 2018 to engender more competition between potential MAPs, thus providing better value for consumers.
