Enugu DisCo Implements NERC’s Metering Scheme


In response to overwhelming customer demand for pre-payment meters (PPM), the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) has announced the implementation of the Credited Advance Payment for Metering Implementation (CAPMI) scheme, ThisDay reports.

CAPMI was initiated by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) to address the slow pace of customer metering by the 11 distribution companies, as well as the high level of complaints received from customers and dissatisfaction with estimated billing practices. The scheme provides a platform for willing customers to pay the cost of the meter into a dedicated account jointly managed by the DISCO and meter vendor/installer and once payment has been effected, the customer will have his meter installed within 45 days.

EEDC’s Head of Corporate Communications, Mr. Emeka Eze, said in a statement yesterday that the scheme would provide customers the option of advancing funds to the company to accelerate the purchase and installation of their smart meters within 45 days.
