Yes it is a good thing to do because at the initial stage we all pay for direct connect to the grid but without government remitting what the consumers actually use in there respective homes.Read Also: How to Check Meter Number Balance and Credit Used
If you look at the defunct PHCN, many consumers do not pay the actual amount of what they use and there by leaving the government to send an estimated bill to each consumers and with these all consumers are finding it very difficult to pay their bills.
So the best way Federal government can remit there payment is to introduce the Prepare meter policy which is been practiced at the moment.
