Mr Babatunde Fashola has begged the power sector stakeholders to co-operate with the Nigerian Electricity and Regulatory Commission (NERC) in performance of its regulatory functions.
The former governor said that the NERC needed stakeholders’ support to complete regulations for metering service providers and eligible customers.
At another meeting, Fashola declared customer eligibility regime for some categories of electricity consumers.
He said if stakeholders were to cooperate with the NERC, it would speed up completion of the customer eligibility declaration and the mini-grid regulation permit.
“The vice-chairman of NERC informed me that a solar-based mini-grid facility will be commissioned in Kigbe Community, Kwali Local Government in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
“It is a 20 KW facility that will power 145 households and 5 businesses. The developer is Havenhill Synergy Ltd.”
“I am also aware that there is another one scheduled for completion and commissioning in Kano shortly,’’ he said.
