The Kaduna Electric says it has commenced customer enumeration using Geographic Information System in four states under its franchise.
This is contained in a statement issued by Head, Corporate Communication of the company, Abdulazeez Abdullahi, and made available to reporters on Thursday in Kaduna.
The statement said that the exercise would be conducted across the company’s franchise states of Kaduna, Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara.
It said that the exercise had commenced in Kaduna state, using NYSC members.
The statement explained that the exercise would capture the data of existing customers; prospective ones, identify undeveloped and developed properties, as well as vacant houses.
The aim of the enumeration exercise according to the statement is to have a comprehensive database of all electricity customers in the four states.
“We inherited a customer base of a little above 400,000 which is far from the true number of electricity users on our network.
“This exercise will give us the correct figure of customers on our network.“
It added that the exercise would enhance the tracking of electricity transformers and mapping, which was already carried out in Kawo, Hayin Danmani and old Tudun Wada in Kaduna.
The company solicited for the support of customers in order to achieve the overall objective.
