FG Provides Fresh Update on Electricity Meters Upgrade

The Federal Government has provided an update on the electricity meter upgrade process, assuring customers that it will not affect the credit unit balance in their meters.

The Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency (NEMSA) stated that all meters and instruments deployed in the sector will meet the right standards.

The Managing Director of NEMSA, Aliyu Tahir, emphasized that the credit balance on the meters will remain intact after the upgrade and that subsequent energy token purchases will continue as usual.

Speaking via a statement, the Managing Director said,

“Let me assure all electricity customers that they have nothing to fear as the meter upgrade process will not affect the credit unit balance on their meters. The credit balance will remain intact after the upgrade.”

This update comes in response to the Standard Transfer Specification for the upgrade of prepaid meters by power distributors in Nigeria.
