Lagosians Rejoices As 85,000 Prepaid Meters To Be Shared Across The State


Ikeja Electric, one of the real power conveyance organizations (DisCos) in Nigeria, says it is
sending 85,000 new prepaid meters to connect the metering hole in its business territory.

The DisCo, in an announcement, said this was done as a major aspect of its recharged pledge to convey the desires of customers, and further close the metering hole inside its system.#
It added that “while abiding by the regulator’s guideline which states that all customers have a right to a properly installed and functional meter, and un-metered customer should be issued with electricity bills strictly based on NERC’s estimated billing methodology, it is also poised to reduce estimated billing with the deployment of prepaid meters”.

The DisCo said it had therefore commenced the “roll-out of 85,000 meters to cover residential customers across its six Business Units,” in its first batch of renewed metering drive.

The six business units include Ikeja, Abule-Egba, Akowonjo, Oshodi, Ikorodu and Shomolu. 

According to Felix Ofulue, head, corporate communications, Ikeja Electric, the company remains resolute in its commitment to meter all its customers and narrow the metering gap as quickly as possible.

“Ikeja Electric wants to reassure customers and state clearly its plans to progressively reduce estimated billing thereby building customers trust in our services. At the moment, prepaid meters are being installed in different communities across the network,” he said.

“While in other localities, pre-installation activities are ongoing and between now and the end of the year we will have concluded the first batch of the deployment.

“We therefore urge our customers to be patient as our ultimate objective is to ensure that all our customers are eventually metered.”
