Abuja (Sundiata Post) – The Managing Director, Jos Electricity Distribution Company, Engr Abdu Bello Mohammed, has said the company has enough meters that will serve its customers in the four franchise States of Gombe, Bauchi, Benue and Plateau States.
Mohammed said there are enough meters, lamenting that customers are not willing to take advantage of the billing technology to end estimated bills.
Speaking at the mobile re-launching of the Meter Asset Providers (MAP), at various locations in Plateau State, the JED boss urged customers to take advantage of the scheme to be metered.
Represented by a Senior Manager in the Marketing Department, Engr Felix Shalzim Adamu and Engr Nasiru Faskari, Mohammed said there are enough meters at the disposal of the vendors.
According to him: “All customers of the company would be metered. Meter remains the only credible implement that will be used in measuring energy.
“We have engaged the services of credible vendors who have made available enough meters awaiting customers’ patronage.
“A single-phase meter costs N63,06.00 while a three-phase meter costs N117, 010. 00. The cost of the meter would be repaid to customers via energy within a given period as specified by the regulator.
“Upon payment of the prescribed fees and presentation of evidence of payment to the Company, the customer would be metered within ten working days”, he said.
