  • Procures 40,000 Electricity Meters

The management of Kaduna Electric Distribution Company has urged customers in states under its jurisdiction to apply and get metered under the Meter Asset Provider (MAP) scheme.

The company disclosed this in a statement by the Head, Corporate Communication of Kaduna Electric, Mr Abdulazeez Abdullahi.

Mr Abdullahi added that four approved Meter Assets Providers (MAPs) for Kaduna Electric have procured 40,000 electricity meters for deployment to customers in the third quarter of this year.

He disclosed that the energy firm has cleared its backlog of customers awaiting meters in its franchise states which include Kaduna, Kebbi, Sokoto and Zamfara States.

According to the statement, customers can apply by visiting the company’s website at www.kadunaelectric.com to fill an application form.

A premises assessment would then be conducted after which customers would be advised to either pay N39,765 for a single-phase meter or N72,084 for a three-phase meter.

It added that the MAPs have committed to installing meters paid for within 10 working days as stipulated by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) regulation.

Mr Abdullahi expressed satisfaction with the commitment shown by the MAPs and called on the customers of the company to avail themselves of the opportunity provided by the MAP scheme to put to rest the contentious estimated billing.

“In line with the NERC regulation, interested customers are at the liberty to pay for the meters upfront or in instalment; in this case, there will be the interest which shall be added to the original cost of the meter,” he said.
