To further boost its ongoing metering initiative, the Eko Electricity Distribution Company has entered into agreement with Huawei to facilitate the installation of prepaid meters within its network.
Eko DISCO under its metering plan is expected to deploy 600,000 meters to its customers. Under the agreement with Huawei, customers within Eko DISCO network will be fully metered to mark the end of the MoU deal with the Chinese technology company.
Chairman of West Power Gas, Owners of Eko DISCO, Mr. Charles Momoh speaking at the signing of the agreement at the just concluded WAPIC 2016 in Lagos, said the deal will speed up the company’s meter installation program before the deadline of Bureau of Public Enterprise (BPE) five years metering scheme with distribution companies.
