In an Order 197 signed by the Chairman, Prof. James Momoh and the Commissioner, Legal, Licencing & Compliance, Dafe Akpeneye, NERC said the new order repeals the 2012 estimated billing regulation effective since last Thursday.
NERC said all unmetered residential and commercial customers shall not be invoiced for the consumption of energy if they are not metered by April.
Residents that consume less than 50kwh will be billed at N4 per kwh and a maximum of N200 monthly.
All other customers on higher tariff classes must be metered by DisCos by 30 April 2020.
“Failing which these customers are not liable to pay any estimated bill issued by the DisCo.”
“Any customer that rejects the installation of a meter on their premises by a DisCo shall not be entitled to supply and must be disconnected,” it noted.
