AEDC introduces mobile metering to rural communities in Nasarawa

The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) on Tuesday said that it has introduced mobile Meter Asset Providers (MAP) metering to communities of Nasarawa State.

General Manager of the Lafia AEDC Regional Office, Alhaji Ameen Shakur, introduced the mobile MAP metering to communities of the state at a Consumer Consultative Forum programme organised by the Obi AEDC Area Office in Obi, headquarters of Obi Local Government Area of the state.

The General Manager explained that the mobile MAP metering was a system where AEDC and the Meter Asset Providers (MAP) provide electricity prepaid meters and carry out instant metering for residents in communities.

“AEDC and the MAP will come to your community and open a one-stop-shop where you can make payment and get your property metered instantly,” Shakur said.

He, however, explained that purchasing a prepaid meter does not eliminate customer’s account debt as all financial outstandings will be migrated to such customer’s metre and deducted.

The AEDC Regional General Manager, therefore, assured the company’s customers in the state of improved electricity in their homesteads with the completion of the Akurba 330KVA power substation by December this year.

“I wish to appeal to traditional rulers in the state to assist the AEDC in the protection of its installations across the state by way of talking to their subjects to be more vigilant on those installations in their neighbourhoods for efficient service delivery,” the GM solicited.
