The Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency (NEMSA) has inaugurated the Abuja Zonal Electricity Metering Installation Personnel Certification Panel (ZEMIPCP) to tackle prevalent cases of poor meter installation.

At the inauguration on Wednesday, the Managing Director of NEMSA, Engr. Peter Ewesor, said the panel is to enforce strict compliance with the standards set for installing electricity meters for electricity consumers.

Ewesor, who is the Chief Electrical Inspector of the Federation (CEIF), further said quacks would be dealt with as similar panels had been raised in the Lagos axis.

“It is illegal for anyone to install electricity meters in the country if he/she is not NEMSA-certified. This is actually to preserve the ethics and specialization of carrying out electrical installation work and ensuring that electricity meters are properly and well installed,” said Ewesor.

The NEMSA head noted that the agency has certified over 9,000 electrical installation contractors since it started the programme in 2016.

“NEMSA is the agency responsible for enforcing the condition for installation of electricity meters in the grid, the transmission and the distribution end. And more importantly, ensuring the meters are actually installed for consumers.”

On the importance of properly installed meters in the power sector, Ewesor said: “It determines the healthiness of the sector. All the revenue that is being generated to run the power industry is generated at the Distribution Companies’ (DisCos) end. And without appropriate and proper metering, it means there is a challenge.”
