The Management of Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) has said that in an effort to bridge the metering gap and give energy consumers the opportunity to monitor their consumption, the company is targeting 24,000 households for metering on monthly basis.
In a statement signed by Head, Corporate Communications, KEDCO, Comrade Ibrahim Sani Shawai, a copy of which was made available on Monday to pressmen in Kano, the company disclosed that the move is to ensure that we address all complaints related to the estimated billing system while ensuring equitable delivery of service through metering.
According to the management, all hindrances slowing the metering to process in Kano franchise have been addressed in order to fast-track metering within the shortest time possible.
His words: “In this regard, we are out to aggressively bridge the metering gap and give energy consumers the opportunity to monitor their consumption.
“Our aim is to meter all our customers, hence our engineers have been trained and placed on standby for any customers who need meters. So we advise customers to come to our offices and fill in our forms for assessment and immediate installation.
“In this light, we all wish to advise all our customers not to give in to meter bypass as such act sabotages our efforts to serve our genuine customers.
“Our motive is to improve power supply, service delivery while ensuring that customers pay for what they consume but with meter bypass, this may challenge such motive.”
