The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) has assigned permits to Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company(KDEDC) and Eko Electricity Distribution Company(EKEDC) Meter Asset Providers (MAPs), in accordance amidst section 4(3) of the MAP regulations NERC- R-112 of 2018.

Dr Usman Arabi, General Manager, Public Affairs of NERC in a statement on Thursday said the MAPs were successful in the procurements conducted by Kaduna and Eko DisCos.

Arabi said section 4(3) of the MAP regulation 2018 required all electricity distribution licensees to engage MAPs that would assist, as investors, in closing the metering gap and thus eliminate the practice of estimated billing in the Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry (NESI).

According to him, Kaduna DisCo has delegated Crest Hill Engineering Ltd, Holley Metering Ltd, Integrated power Nigeria Ltd and Mojec International Ltd to supply meters in its coverage areas.

“Customers of these Disco’s should await from the commencement of rollout date for meters to be fixed in their premises within 10 working days of making payment to MAPs in accordance with section 18 (3) of the MAP regulations 2018.
