Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) yesterday said it has spent more than N10 billion on the procurement and installation of prepaid meters to its customers as part of efforts to end estimated billings in its area of coverage.
The company also announced that it inherited more than 700,000 unmetered customers when it took over from the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN).
EEDC Head of Communications, Mr. Emeka Ezeh, gave this hint while speaking with journalists in Enugu. He said it had always been the desire of EEDC to meter all its customers.
Eze, who said the power distribution company had procured certified prepaid meters at the cost of more than N10 billion, pointed out that due to lack of adequate funds, they cannot at present provide meters to all their customers.
