The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) has directed the electricity Distribution Companies (DisCos) not to increase tariffs of customers enjoying less than 12 hours of daily power supply.
The NERC Commissioner, Legal Licensing and Compliance, Dafe Akpeneye, on Friday, September 11, gave the directive during the agency’s town hall meeting with customers on the new electricity tariff regime.
“Anyone who is enjoying less than 12 hours of electricity must not have their tariffs increased.
Customers who receive electricity service below the band they have been assigned can have the DisCos move them to the actual band of electricity service they receive.
Unhappy? Contest the band classification you have been assigned,” he said.
