The Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company (PHED) has commenced massive deployment and installation of smart meters to its residential customers in Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Cross River and Rivers States, THISDAY reports.

Flagging off the first phase of the metering installation in Port Harcourt at Rumuomasi, the Chief Operating Officer of PHED, Kingsley Achife, said the company would not rest on its oars until all customers are metered.

Achife, who was represented by the Chief financial Officer, Jean Pierre Breton, reiterated the company’s commitment in metering every customer in the network, noting that over 150,000 meters would have been deployed and installed before the end of this year.

He assured customers that all commercial-related complaints would be resolved during the metering period, as a PHED reconciliation team would be on ground at each transformer location with a view to resolving all issues on the spot.
