EEDC begins installation of pre-paid meters on transformers


The Enugu Electricity Distribution Commission (EEDC), has started the installation of pre- paid meters on transformers across the South-East zone to curtail incidences of over-billing bulk consumers.

Head, Communications, EEDC, Mr Emeka Eze, made this known while responding to enquiries by Vanguard on the non-provision of pre-paid meters for individual consumers or residential houses.

Eze said: “Some communities that opted for bulk billing usually contest and complain about the bills issued to them at the end of the month. “As a result of this, their transformer is metered as that is the only way their energy consumption can be captured or measured.”
