Eko Electricity Distribution Company has taken steps to improve its estimated billing system. In a statement sent to Vanguard, Mr. Godwin Idemudia, EKEDC’s Corporate Communications General Manager, stated that the company has included the metering of Distribution Transformers to its meter roll out plan.
Already, he stated that the company has metered One Hundred and Five units of 500KVA Distribution Transformers from September 2017 till date and installed 7746 individual meters in 2018 alone. Mr. Idemudia explained that metering the distribution transformers (DT) will enable the company to determine the exact amount of energy consumed in an area, and that customers will be billed based on the readings from the meters installed at the transformers.
According to him, the efforts were being made to bridge metering gap of customers in the area. He pleaded with customers yet to be metered to bear with the company, stating that efforts were ongoing to provide the facility to others.
