The Enugu state Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) has commenced Meter Asset Provider (MAP) programme, urging its customers to take advantage of the initiative and get pre-payment meters within 10 days.
The Head of Communications, EEDC, Mr Emeka Ezeh, said in a statement in Enugu that customers would get their pre-payment meters installed within 10 days after paying for them.
Ezeh said the company had been working closely with its MAP provider, Mojec International Limited, to ensure that “the experience is smooth and easy for its customers.’’
The company’s spokesman said the meters would cost N36,991:50 kobo and N67,055:85 kobo for single-phased and three-phased types respectively, excluding Value Added Tax (VAT) tax.
Ezeh said: “for customers to get started, they are expected to visit the EEDC District Office in charge of their area from June 15 to pick up the meter application forms.
“The forms which are serialised will be issued to customers free of charge and should not be photocopied as the photocopied version will not be treated.
Once the customer completes the form and returns same to the customer service representative, the pre-survey process will be initiated,” he stated.
The spokesman said further that afterwards, the customer would be issued a demand note with which to pay for the meter at the designated bank.
“Once payment is made, the company’s MAP provider is under obligation to meter the customer within 10 days of payment. Customers are therefore advised to only make payment into a dedicated bank account that will be provided to them, and not to any individual or group,” he added.
Eze urged customers to approach the customer service officers at EEDC district offices within their areas for further enquiries and assistance.
