The Jos Electricity Distribution Company, has enough meters that will serve its customers in the four franchise States of Gombe, Bauchi, Benue and Plateau.
Engr. Abdu Bello Mohammed, Managing-Director, of the company, made this disclosure at the mobile re-launch of the Meter Asset Providers (MAP), at various locations in Plateau State.
In a statement signed by Dr. Friday Adakole Elijah, Head, Corporate Communications, Mohammed urged customers to take advantage of the scheme to be metered, adding that there were enough meters, even as he lamented that customers were not willing to take advantage of the billing technology to end estimated bills.
Represented by Engr Felix Shalzim Adamu, a Senior Manager in the Marketing Department, and Engr Nasiru Faskari, Mohammed said there were enough meters at the disposal of the vendors.
Said Mohammed: “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 N63,006.00 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”.
