Nigeria: Electricity - Law Demands All Customers to Be Metered From 2020

The new electricity Multi-Year Tariff Order (MYTO) 2015 mandates the 11 Distribution companies (Discos) to complete metering of all unmetered electricity customers one year after they exhaust their 2019 five-year metering plan, Daily Trust reports.

The Order No.142 issued by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) signed by the former chairman, Dr Sam Amadi, and the erstwhile commissioner, Legal Licensing and Enforcement, Dr. Steve Andzenge, on December 21, 2015 directed that the Discos will be held accountable for service improvements in line with their performance agreement and service standard from January 2016.

The Discos were told to adhere strictly to the approved minimum benchmark for covering their metering gaps as contained in their respective performance contract. Most of them last year committed to rolling out 100,000 meters annually for the next five years (to 2019).
