CAN CUSTOMER BE CHARGED FOR ELECTRICITY EVEN AFTER DISCONNECTION.
Every user of electricity in any part of Nigeria, has a Right to Request for Disconnection from electricity at any time of the year. Duration a period that a customer requested for a disconnection from the electricity Distribution Company (DisCo) in charge of his area, such a customer can no longer be charged/billed for electricity, whether or not such disconnection was done. It is illegal for any DisCo to charge or request for payment for a period a customer was disconnected. Kindly report such illegal demands and practises to Nigerian Electricity Regulation Commission (NERC) or speak to your lawyer.
My authorities are Regulations 8 and 14 of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission’s Connection and Disconnection Procedures for Electricity Services, 2007.
