The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) says it has recently mapped the entire electricity network in the South-East using Geographic Information System (GIS) to improve its operations.

The Manager of GIS in EEDC, Mr Uche Anyalewechi, said this on Saturday while speaking on activities by the EEDC to commemorate this year’s edition of GIS Day. Anyalewechi, explained how the company was taking advantage of the GIS technology to improve the reach of network within its service areas.

The manager recalled that EEDC commenced the GIS project early last year and the effort had attracted commendation from the National Electricity Regulation Commission (NERC), noting that the commission described it as a “benchmark which other Discos will be required to emulate.”

He explained that “the GIS project, which is of immense benefit to both EEDC and its customers, is also aimed at facilitating comprehensive metering of electricity customers and for easy identification of electrical assets and their state.
