The Managing Director of Nigerian Electricity Management Service Agency (NEMSA), Peter Ewesor said the agency has so far inspected 25,000 and certified electricity meters.
According to him, WINDROCK/USAID have promised to assist the agency in terms of meter testing.
Peter said the testing of meters for accuracy has always been of benefit to the electricity consumers, who only pays for what they consumes and the distribution companies (DisCo) which are sure of collecting the right revenue.
He noted that uncertified electrical contractors no longer undertake installations in any of the Nigeria Electricity Supply Industry (NESI).
NEMSA had on July 26 commenced a nationwide certification of electrical contractors.
The managing director, speaking with The Nation in Abuja, said following the awareness campaign that the agency embarked upon since the flag-off, people know that they are now barred from carrying out electrical installation without NEMSA’s certification.
