The management of Ikeja Electric says it has commenced distribution of over 850,000 prepaid meters to its consumers in its six business units in Lagos.

Felix Ofulue, the Head, Corporate Communications Unit, in a statement said that this was to close the metering gap within its network in a renewed commitment to satisfy the yearnings of customers. According to Ofulue, the company is abiding with the regulator’s guideline which states that all customers have a right to properly installed and functional meters.

He said that the regulator also stated that un-metered customers should be issued with electricity bills strictly based on the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission’s estimated billing methodology. Ofulue said that the roll out would cover residential customers across its six Business Units, in its first batch of the renewed metering drive.
