Eko Electricity Distribution Company, EKEDC, has assured its customers that the National Mass Metering Programme, NMMP, is still on going, and encouraged those who are yet to register to do so to be eligible for the programme.
The NMMP, which commenced in October 2020, is an initiative of the Federal Government in collaboration with the Electricity Distribution Companies, Discos, and the local meter manufacturers to bridge the metering gap in the country by providing smart meters to all electricity consumers.
According to the Company’s Corporate Communications General Manager, Godwin Idemudia, “the programme started with pre-installation survey, followed by installation of meters for the customers. Customers who are yet to register are advised to visit EKEDC official website and fill the application form via www.ekedp.com/ordermeter to benefit from the programme”.
He reiterated that metering under this programme is free as customers are not to pay any amount to be metered. He said “we want to repeat that metering under this programme is absolutely free and all our customers should not at any point pay any amount to our staff or partners for the purchase of meters. The form is free and can be accessed on our website as mentioned above. If anyone makes any demands from you, please report to us immediately for swift action.
