PHCN begins prepaid metering

Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) yesterday began the implementation of Credit Advance Payment for Metering Installation (CAMPI) to customers.

The CAPMI was designed by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) to fill the gap created by the old metering system as contained in the Multi-Year Tariff Order (MYTO) II in which inadequate funding of the programme led to shortage in the supply of the prepaid meters and the challenges of paying outrageous bills

EKEDC Chief Executive Officer, Oladele Amoda, in a statement, said  CAPMI will ensure that customers of PHCN  get prepaid meters within 48 hours or 45 days.

He said: “When a willing customer credits our account with N25,000 for single phase meter, he will get metered within 48 hours to a maximum of 45 days. This interval includes days of  inspections of where the meter will be installed by our technical staff, to avoid diversion, or hoarding.”
