Ikeja Electric begins MAP rollout in Shomolu business unit

Ikeja Electric Plc (IE) has commenced the roll out of meters for customers in the Shomolu Business Unit under the Meter Asset Provider scheme.

The Disco, which has just completed the installation of meters for all residents of Unilag Estate in Isheri, announced that it has also commenced metering of Magodo residents and will extend the service across the Business Unit in the next few weeks.

This exercise is part of the company efforts to bridge the metering gap under its network. It is also in line with the directive of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).

Acting Chief Commercial Officer Ikeja Electric, Ugochukwu Obi-Chukwu, explained that Ikeja Electric is deploying meters in phases, starting with Shomolu, Ikorodu and Abule-Egba Business Units. The second phase will include Akowonjo, Ikeja and Oshodi Business Units.

“We have commenced metering in University of Lagos Estate, Magodo and some other areas as a pilot scheme. It is the unique demography of these areas that has made the survey of customers very easy” he said.

According to him, unmetered customers can register through map.ikejaelectric.com using their Ikeja Electric’s account number on the bill to update their KYC (Know Your Customer) details after which a survey will be carried out to determine the type of meter that will be suitable for their premises.
