The Association of Nigerian Electricity Distributors (ANED) the umbrella body of the electricity distribution companies, has raised concerns over the draft regulation by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) to introduce meter asset providers, The Punch reports.
The Chief Executive Officer, ANED, Mr. Azu Obiaya, said, “We have seen the draft regulation and there is quite a bit of it that we are not happy with. We have recently provided feedback to the regulator and I believe that there is a consultation forum coming up on Monday. We will continue to strongly convey our concerns to the regulator.”
Describing metering as a critical point in the Discos’ revenue collection, he said, “So, you can understand that we are very concerned about the regulation. The Discos, as part of their performance obligations, have metering obligations. We want to be sure that whatever arrangement that comes out will allow us to ensure revenue protection and protect our customers.”
