AEDC to engage more meter providers to end estimated billing

The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) has pledged to engage more meter asset providers in the power sector to address the metering problem in the country.

Mr Oyebode Fadipe, Head Corporate Communications, AEDC disclosed this while addressing newsmen at a roundtable on power by the Civil Society Groups for Good Governance on Thursday in Abuja. Fadipe, who identified estimated billing known as “crazy billing’’ as the major challenge facing the power sector, however, assured that the problem would soon be a thing of the past.

According to him, it will be solved through engagement of more power sector players in the industry. Fadipe urged consumers on estimated billing with issues with their bills to go through the complaint process to get them addressed. He said that the Meter Asset Provider (MAP) policy currently in use was essential in order to improve the metering platform in the country.
