NERC Orders DisCos Not To Bill Unmetered Customers More Than N1800 Monthly

The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) has barred the 11 Distribution Companies () from charging residential above an average of N1,800 until they are metered.

The order is coming amidst continued outrages on over billing by electricity customers.

In an Order 197 signed by the Chairman, Prof. James Momoh and the Commissioner, Legal, Licencing & Compliance, Dafe Akpeneye, NERC said the new order repeals the 2012 estimated billing regulation effective since last Thursday.

It also said electricity consumers have grown from five million in 2012 to over 10m by December 2019.

The commission said about 52 percent of them are not metered and are placed on estimated billing by the DisCos.
