Enugu Electricity Consumers To Get Metres In 48 Hours


The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) said customers will now be able to get their prepaid metres 48 hours after they have enroled in the ongoing mobile Metre Asset Provider (MAP) programme. This was nade known by the Chief Technical Officer of EEDC, Vincent Ekwekwu, during the commencement of the mobile MAP programme for customers in Anambra held in Ogidi, Idemili North LGA.

Ekwekwu called on consumers without metres in the area to take advantage of the programme as it will be the end of estimated billing in payment for power. He said the programme will be mutually beneficial to both the company and customers because it will result in fair pricing and prompt payment of energy consumed.

According to him, the whole essence is to increase patronage and close the payment gap, because people are complaining that they are no longer comfortable with the high estimated bill they are getting. “But with this arrangement, the era of estimated and post-paid is gone, apart from the smart prepaid meters being recharged online, you can now regulate your supply and manage your energy.”

Speaking concerning safety of installation in the network area, Ekwekwu said the company was determined to tackle incidents of vandalism. He said that talks are ongoing by the company with local vigilante groups, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and other security agencies to help keep them safe.
