DisCos to ensure compliance on meter testing – Senate

DisCos to ensure compliance on meter testing – Senate

The Senate has charged the 11 electricity distribution companies (DISCOs), to ensure strict compliance with laws that make it compulsory for meters brought into the country to be tested before they are deployed to consumers.

The Senate wants transformers and all electricity equipment to be deposited in the power sector to undergo compulsory certification tests to ensure compliance with standards. The directives were given when the Senate Committee on Power, Steel Development and Metallurgy visited the Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency (NEMSA) on oversight in Abuja.

Chairman of the Committee, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, observed that many Discos don’t subject their meters to certification by NEMSA, and charged the agency to ensure full compliance with the laws in this regard.
Abaribe observed that there were records of electrical cables, meters, transformers and other equipment in the electricity sector and pledged the support of the legislature to ensure the upgrade of NEMSA test stations to bring them at par with global standards. Read more
