Update your meter before November – NERC warns Nigerians

The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) has advised users of prepaid meter to update their meters before November 2024.

NERC made this announcement in a tweet on its X account on Wednesday, stating that the update will be seamless and without any associated cost.

The regulatory commission noted that prepaid meter users might face difficulties in recharging their meters after November 2024 if the required updates are not done before the deadline.

“If you have a prepaid meter, it may be time for an update. From November 2024, you may not be able to recharge your meter. However, updating is easy and free,” NERC stated.

NERC added that the Electricity Distribution Companies (DisCos) shall commence the issuance of two free Key Change Tokens (KCTs), which will update meters.

“The update will not affect the units in your meter nor will it make your meter run faster than usual. Contact your DisCo for more information.” it added.

Meanwhile, the minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu, has promised to meter all households in Nigeria and fix the challenges affecting the national grid.

Adelabu stated this during his inaugural address after President Bola Ahmed Tinubu swore him in on Monday, August 21.

During his inaugural speech, Adelabu said his vision for the Ministry of Power is rooted in leveraging the Nigerian Electricity Act of 2023 which has opened new avenues for power provision and encourages collaboration between public and private sectors.

Adelabu vowed to fix the numerous challenges associated with the national grid and pay attention to the option of renewable energy.
