Africa/Middle East: Nigeria

Partnership Exchange on Market Reforms

Date: September 20-24, 2010
Location: Abuja, Nigeria

With support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), NARUC experts from the Michigan Public Service Commission visited the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) for a partnership exchange. The main topics of conversation during this activity were consumer choice, data collection and management, price-cap regulation, and tariffs.

NARUC experts recommended that NERC consider the following as the regulator continued to move ahead with consumer choice: reinforce rule making and enforcement authority; internally develop customer choice rules, guidelines and business practices; solicit input from outside parties to modify and enhance the program; establish penalties and enforcement measures; establish clear procedures to hear complaints and administer remedies/penalties; and apply an approach for stranded asset recovery. NARUC experts also provided recommendations on billing and accounting matters.
