Technical And Economic Regulation Of Nigeria’s Power Sector
With the ongoing reforms in Nigeria’s power sector, particularly the privatisation of generation and distribution companies, there are expectations of a truly liberalized market in which consumers will mostly pay for services that they enjoy, while service providers will strive for quality operations.
The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, NERC, was set up to undertake technical and economic regulation of this industry.
The commission is to license operators, determine operating codes and standards, establish customer rights and obligations and set tariffs.
NERC Chairman, Dr. Sam Amadi, is our guest on this edition of ‘View From The Top’.
