    Nigeria: Electricity distribution company plans to provide smart meters to customers

    Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) Monday says it could provide customers in five states of the south-east with smart meters in 2017 to reduce complaints about high bills.

    Emeka Eze, head, communication department for the electricity distribution agency said this in Aba, Abia state.

    According to him, the company had started providing meters in Awkunanaw area of Enugu state assuring that other states will gradually be metered.

    His words: “Metering is one major thing we are taking very seriously in the New Year. Over N9 billion had been invested in metering project so far in the last one year.

    “The metering gap is quite huge and we do not have the resources to provide meters for everybody at the same time.”
    “We have more than 700,000 unmetered customers in our network. So it is something that will take us a while. The 700,000 are the ones we have in our books.

    “There are electricity consumers we do not have in our books and are the people we are trying to bring into our books through the enumeration we are to start this January’’, he said.
