All unmetered customers of Ikeja Electric Plc have been scheduled for metering, a notice from the electricity distribution company has revealed.

The affected customers would be provided prepaid meters under the National Mass Metering Programme (NMMP) of the federal government, the disclosure explained.

However, to claim the meters, energy consumers would have to register on the Ikeja Electric platform and provide the necessary details.

Interested applicants have been advised to visit kyc.ikejaelectric.com for registration.

A visit to the registration portal by Business Post showed that unmetered energy consumers would be asked their biodata, including the IE account number, means of identification, passport photograph, amongst others.

“This information is for all unmetered customers under Ikeja Business unit. You have now been scheduled for metering under the National Mass Metering Program.

“All those who are yet to register are enjoined to visit kyc.ikejaelectric.com to complete their registration as soon as possible.

“Please note that we will not be able to meter you without a complete registration via kyc.ikejaelectric.com,” the notice from the disco said.

It further urged customers not to pay any money to the meter installers as well as Ikeja Electric staff at “any point, during your field survey or meter installation.”

The federal government, as part of efforts to bridge the wide metering gap, came up with NMMP and it is to provide six million locally-made prepaid meters to energy consumers in the country.

Though it said the meters would be installed free of charge, Business Post gathered that over time, customers will pay for the meters.

A strategy would be designed to deduct the value of the prepaid meters from every recharge made by the customers.

It could be similar to the deduction of a certain percentage of every unit of energy bought by current customers with outstanding bills on their prepaid meters.
