EEDC completes power project in Nsukka * boasts of 18 hours power supply

With the Enugu Electricity Distribution PLC (EEDC) having completed the realignment of its Nsukka Township 11KV Feeder, in Nsukka, Enugu State, both commercial and residential customers within the affected area can now boast of up to eighteen hours of electricity supply.

A statement from the company said these customers, majority of whom are commercial banks and hoteliers, now enjoy reliable and steady supply during their active time thereby reducing tremendously their expenses on diesel and generator maintenance.

The statement was issued Wednesday by the Head of Communications, EEDC, Emeka Ezeh.

According to Ezeh, the recent effort is coming against the backdrop of EEDC’s commitment towards improving the socio-economic state of the South East region.

It will be recalled that late last year, EEDC also invested in its network in Nsukka, to improve the quality of service to customers by constructing additional feeders. These include: the UNN 33KV, Orba 33KV and Wilson 11KV feeders. This significantly improved power supply to customers in the area, resulting to the deloading of Eha Amufu 33KV line.

Just few months ago, EEDC equally completed and commissioned major projects in Owerri, Imo State and Abakaliki, Ebonyi State respectively. These include: a dedicated 33KV line for one of the company’s industrial customer, Alex Aluminium Company; the Oguta 33KV double circuit line and the Azuiyiokwu II,11KV feeder in Abakaliki.

While appealing to customers to reciprocate this investment by paying their electricity bills and desisting from acts such as energy theft, meter bypass, and vandalism, which impacts negatively on the company’s operations, Ezeh also encouraged those customers that are unmetered to embrace the ongoing Meter Asset Provider (MAP) metering scheme to get their properties metered.
