The Association of Nigeria Electricity Distributors (ANED) has assured the non-Maximum Demand (MD) customers or residential customers that it is intensifying plans to provide meters to eradicate the challenge of estimated billing, P.M. News reports.

The Chief Executive Officer of ANED, Mr Azu Obiaya, in a statement on Sunday in Abuja, said that the DisCos metering target was in line with the performance agreement entered into with the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE). He said that residential customers that were yet to be metered would continue to be receive estimated bills, adding that metering would soon be achieved for all residential customers.

According to him, the DisCos remained sensitive and responsive to the unintentional challenges of estimated billing that residential or non-MD customers were faced with. “It is critically important that we state that there is no more interested party in the comprehensive metering of our electricity consumers than the DisCos. It is our hope and expectation that such metering will be achieved sooner rather than later,” Obiaya said.
