The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC), is to begin the deployment of 222,728 meters valued about N10 billion for customers in its franchise areas of FCT, Kogi, Niger and Nasarawa States.
A statement by its Head, Corporate Communications, Mr Oyebode Fadipe, said the deployment of the meters, which would begin on Aug. 8, was under the second phase of its mass metering programme. Fadipe said the company had in the first phase of its mass metering project, installed no fewer than 150,000 meters for its customers across its coverage area.
He said the company’s aggressive deployment of meters was part of its determination to achieve 100% metering of its customers to engender public confidence in its billing process. Fadipe said the installation was also to complement the Meter Asset Provider (MAP) scheme, initiated by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) to accelerate metering of electricity consumers across the country.
