The Enugu Electricity Distribution PLC (EEDC) has commenced Meter Asset Provider (MAP) program and call on its customers to take advantage of the initiative and get metered within 10 working days of paying for the meter.
This is following the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) approval of its MAP, Mojec International Limited, and further directive to all distribution companies to commence implementation.
It will be recalled that the MAP regulation was initiated by the Federal Government of Nigeria and NERC 2018 to help close up the existing metering gap in the sector through the engagement of third party agents saddled with the responsibility of metering electricity customers.
According to the Head of Communications, EEDC, Mr. Emeka Ezeh, the organization has worked closely with its MAP, Mojec International Limited, to ensure that the experience is smooth and easy for its customers.
It was also gathered that effort is being made to sign-up a second MAP, Protogy Global Services Limited,to complement Mojec International Limited.
Ezeh said the meters cost N36,991.50K and N67,055.85K for single phase and three phase respectively; and this cost is exclusive of VAT.
For customers to get started, they are advised to log on to EEDC website: www.enugudisco.com, click on the “MAP Meter Request” button and fill the online form.
Alternatively, for customers who do not have access to internet, they can visit the Customer Service Unit at any EEDC District Office to pick up the Meter application form, fill and submit to the Customer Service representative.
Once the form has been submitted, the pre-survey process will be initiated, after which the customer will be issued a Demand Note with which to pay for the meter at the designated banks.
As soon as payment for meter is made, the MAP is under obligation to meter the customer within 10 working days.
Customers are therefore advised to only make payments into a dedicated bank account that will be provided in the Demand Note, and not to any individual or group.
“It is important to reiterate that the meter application form is issued at no cost and customers should make payment to designated bank account that will be provided to them through the Demand Note, and they should not pay to any staff of the MAP or EEDC”, Ezeh said.
For enquiries or assistance, customers are encouraged to approach the Customer Service representatives at the District offices or call the 24/7 Call Center on: 084 700 100
