The management of Eko Electricity Distribution Company Plc (EKEDC) said on Friday that it had provided meters to the 6,834 Maximum Demand (MD) customers within its network, as directed by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), Vanguard reports.

The Chief Operating Officer of EKEDC, Mr Sam Nwaire, announced this at a town hall meeting with customers under the Agbara-Badagry Business District in Lagos. Nwaire said that the essence of the town hall meeting was to update its customers on the development and to engage them on ways they could assist EKEDC to improve its services.

He said that the company had completed metering all its MD customers since March 31, within the stipulated time frame. Nwaire explained that the company had metered about 50 per cent of residential customers on free meters, to meet its five years metering plan, adding that residential consumers were not included in the directive issued by the NERC on the “no meter, no payment,’’ order.
