In line with the Meter Asset Provider (MAP) Scheme initiated by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) in June, the management of Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) said it was set to flag off the second phase of its mass metering program.
A statement issued by head, Corporate Communications of AEDC, Oyebode Fadipe, said the project earmarked to kickoff on Wednesday July 8, 2018, would involve the installation of 222,728 meters valued at about N10 billion for its customers under its jurisdiction.
He explained that the AEDC was implementing the second phase of its mass metering project in partnership with The Meron Consortium, a group which comprises meter manufacturers, financiers, installers, as well as advisory services firms. It added that the development was in compliance with the Meter Asset Provider (MAP) Scheme initiated by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) to accelerate the metering of all electricity consumers across the country.
Describing the initiative as aggressive deployment of meters, Fadipe said it was part of the company’s determination to achieve 100 per cent metering of its customers to engender public confidence in its billing process.
In May this year, the AEDC and The Meron Consortium agreed to work together on the deployment of the 222,728 pre-paid meters under the second phase of the former’s mass metering project.
Speaking at a short ceremony held in Abuja to signal the commencement of the partnership, the managing director/CEO of AEDC, Engr. Ernest Mupwaya, said that there were so many benefits associated with metering for both the company and its customers.
“For customers, metering gives them the assurance of fair, transparent and accurate billing and also serves as a useful tool for them to manage their consumption and costs.
