The Management of Enugu Electricity Distribution PLC (EEDC) has declared its intention to suspend the standalone meter decommissioning exercise until more smart prepaid meters are procured to complete the swapping exercise.
Emeka Ezeh, Head of Communications, EEDC, made this known in Enugu.
He said with this development, customers whose meters are yet to be decommissioned can visit any of the designated vending points located at select District Offices to recharge their meters.
The select locations are: Awkunanaw, Abakpa, Awka, Onitsha, Owerri, New Owerri and Nnewi districts offices.
EEDC said part of the reasons for the decommissioning exercise is the increasing difficulty in providing support for the card reader system used in vending these standalone meters. However, EEDC have retrieved some of the machines that are functional and deployed them at the select designated locations to enable customers vend their meters.
Efforts are in place to install meters for customers whose meters were decommissioned during the exercise.
Consequently, customers within EEDC network that are still unmetered, and those on standalone meters are enjoined to take advantage of the ongoing Meter Asset Provider (MAP) scheme, a metering program designed and approved by the Federal Government and the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), to procure their smart prepaid meters.
