Prepaid Meter Users  Warned to Update Before November 2024

Prepaid Meter Users  Warned to Update Before November 2024 

The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) has instructed all prepaid electricity customers in Nigeria to update their metres by November 2024.

On Tuesday, August 22, 2023, the Commission sent a notice to prepaid metre users via its official Twitter account, reminding them of the deadline.

It stated that for the updating process, consumers would be issued two free key change tokens by their respective electricity distribution companies (DisCos), which they would use in carrying out the update.

The Commission said the update will not affect the customers’ units, nor will it make their metres run faster than usual.

NERC tweeted: “If you have a prepaid metre, it may be time for an update. From November 2024 on, you may not be able to recharge your metre. However, updating is easy and free. DisCos shall commence the issuance of two free Key Change Tokens (KCTs), which will update your metre.”

It added that the forthcoming update will have no impact on the readings of your meter, and will not result in any acceleration of its usual operational pace.

As noted by NERC, recharging of meters will no longer be enabled unless consumers complete the updating process. NERC further advised all users of prepaid meters to reach out to their respective DisCos for more information on the updating process.
