The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company has said it would begin the 2023 mobile mapping process for mass metering in Anambra state on January 10.


The Head, Corporate Communications of EEDC, Emeka Ezeh, said this in a statement on Thursday, according to The News Agency of Nigeria.


He stated that this measure was to ensure that customers in Anambra were captured and provided with prepaid meters within 48 hours under the Meter Asset Provider project.


The MAP project is a metering intervention designed and approved by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission.


Ezeh said the project, which is a conscious approach by the company, was adopted to close the existing metering gap in its network, would take place in Ogidi District on January 10 at St. Paul Anglican Church, Ogidi, Ochendo Hall, Ogidi and Afor Market Town Hall, Obosi and would run for three days.


The single-phase meter would be sold for N63,061.27 while, the three-phase meter at N117,910.69 inclusive of VAT.


Ezeh said it was designed to be implemented according to Feeders, with three different locations selected within the areas covered by the Feeder where meters would be supplied simultaneously.


According to him, customers within these areas will be pre-notified of when the exercise will be carried out within their neighborhood.


He said, “Customers residing in the listed locations are expected to visit the site along with a valid form of identification including Drivers License, Voters Card, NIN or International Passport and a copy of their bills.


“At the location, EEDC officials will assist customers with the MAP application process, and installation will be made once payment is confirmed.


“It will be recalled that in June 2022, EEDC launched the pilot of mobile MAP metering in Enugu and has executed the same in several locations within the metropolis.


“EEDC reaffirms that it is in its best interest to have all its customers metered, which informs its commitment towards ensuring that its customers are metered.


“The exercise was in conjunction with its MAP partners.”
