The CWG smart metering venture has gained the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) recognition with the conferment of the METER SERVICE PROVIDER (MSP) Certification.
The achievement of this MSP certification has come at a point in the Nation’s economy when potentials abound within the metering business for scale up. As hitherto, the operations of the CWG Smart Utility Systems had been limited to servicing clients within the real estate sector, with facilities management firms being the principal targets. With that model, there was virtually no leverage access to doing business with the electricity distribution companies (Discos).
However, the recent conferment of the MSP certification has opened the CWG SUS product line, to unlimited business opportunities and foray of engagements with the more Discos, most especially now that the Regulator (NERC), is revamping the trend of meter procurement and installation, Nationwide.
The rigorous certification process which lasted for over 10 months, with Emmanuel Ilori the Business Development Manager, Utility Systems at CWG and his team working resolutely with the Regulators through the process of the assessment of CWG’s expertise, resulting in the uncontestable issuance of the MSP license. CWG Plc is thus one of the few recognized Business Partners within the metering business’ space in Nigeria. This achievement has contributed immensely to the attainment of a new global status as an industry value driver within the electricity industry.
The implication of the MSP status for CWG ranges from, being enabled to engage in more productive businesses with the Discos, to being better positioned to service clients more efficiently having more ownership in the OEMs process and attaining sustainable market leadership within the metering business industry.
CWG has yet again added a feather to its cap, making a notable advancement in the continuous endeavor for excellence whilst deploying technology solutions that enable growth.
