All Electricity Protection Forum, an electricity advocacy group, has appealed to Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) to reduce the cost of prepaid meters in the country.
Adeola Samuel-Ilori, National Coordinator of the forum said this while speaking with News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Lagos .
Samuel-Ilori said the call became necessary following waiver granted on meter importation by the Federal Government. NAN reports that NERC had in June increased the cost of meters from N67,055 to N82,855 for three phase meters and from N36,991 to N44, 896 for single phase meters under the Meter Asset Provider (MAP) scheme.
Samuel-Ilori said the DisCos had continued to flout NERC’s directive on ending estimated billing and metering of customers who have paid for meters within 10 days without sanctions.
