World Bank provides 40 000 prepaid meters to Kaduna residents

21 January 2014, 17:48

Kaduna - The Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company (KEDC) will take delivery of 40 000 prepaid metres from the World Bank in February, the company’s Managing Director, Mohammed Idris, said.

 The prepaid meters would solve the current dearth of the equipment in the state.

Idris said the company had marked the areas that the new meters would be installed. He noted that the debt profile of the company stood at N40 billion.

He, however, added that the company had introduced new measures that would enable customers to pay their electricity bills promptly.

He added that “we have introduced new metering programme and we are confident that it is accepted by customers.

“The National Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) said if you have money and want a meter but cannot wait for the free meters from government, you can pay to accredited vendors, approved by the commission.

“Some electricity consumers who keyed into this arrangement will get their meters installed in five weeks.

“We are glad that the arrangement is working and we have recorded successes."
