IKEDC to resume prepaid meter distribution 


Ikeja Electric Distribution Company has announced that it will resume the distribution of prepaid meters through the Meter Assets Provider programme. 

The announcement was made by Morenikeji Amosun, the Head of the Metering Team for Ikeja Electric, during a virtual stakeholders’ forum.

Amosun said that the new meters have been imported under the programme and that deployment will begin soon. 

He added that existing customers who ordered meters at old prices will receive their meters without additional payment. 

However, fresh orders will be subject to the new meter prices the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission sets.

This move aims to address the backlog of orders and improve meter access for electricity consumers.

Speaking on the commencement of the distribution, Amusan said, “We can assure you that MAPs has brought in new meters, and customers will start getting their meters in the coming week and beyond.”

“But the focus would first be on those that had ordered about two or three months ago at old prices. For those that had paid old prices, no additional payment would be required from them before they get their meters. But new orders would carry the new prices.”
