NERC’S Guidelines on Distribution Franchising

NERC Guidelines

On 02 July 2020, the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC or the Commission) issued the Guidelines on Distribution Franchising in the Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry dated 24 June 2020 (the Franchising Guidelines), to primarily establish a regulatory framework for franchising arrangements by electricity distribution licensees (DisCos) as contemplated by section 69 of the Electric Power Sector Reform Act 2005 (EPSRA).

Prior to the issuance of the Franchising Guidelines, NERC had published a consultation Paper on the Development of a Regulatory Framework for Electricity Distribution Franchising in Nigeria (the Consultation Paper) which sets out an indicative regulatory framework for distribution franchising in the Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry (NESI), and invited the public and stakeholders to comment on any relevant issue thrown up by the Consultation Paper by submitting written memoranda to NERC on or before 06 May 2019.
