NERC Urges Users to Update Prepaid Meters Before November 2024

The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission has urged prepaid meter users to update their meters before November 2024.

NERC shared the update on its X handle (formerly Twitter) on Tuesday.

The electricity regulatory commission added that the update, which was free of charge, would not affect the current prepaid units of users.

It further advised users to contact their distribution companies for more information as regards the update.

The statement read: “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. DisCos shall commence issuance of two free Key Change Tokens (KCTs) which will update your meter.

“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.”
