The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) has said customers should no longer pay for prepaid meters as it continues with its metering plan.
AEDC said yesterday that it began the winding down process to stop the Credited Advance Payment for Metering Initiative (CAPMI) while complying with the directive from the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).
The company in a notice to customers said it had directed its offices and officials to stop receiving any payments for meters either in cash or by bank draft with immediate effect.
It assured customers that have paid for meters under CAPMI before the notice that their meters would be supplied and installed shortly.
It said it had rolled out over 50,000 meters this year and plans to massively deploy another 85,000 units this year.
