The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) said that customers should no longer pay for prepaid meters as it continues with its metering plan.
The company stated this yesterday that it began the winding down process to stop the Credited Advance Payment for Metering Initiative (CAPMI) while complying with the directive from the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).
The company in a notice to its customers said it had directed its offices and officials to stop receiving any payments for meters either in cash or by bank draft with immediate effect.
Recall that the Nigeria Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) have directed the 11 distribution companies to wind down the process for CAPMI ending by November 1, adding that customers should no longer pay to get prepaid meters.
However, the company assured customers that have paid for meters under CAPMI before the notice that their meters would be supplied and installed shortly.
It said it had rolled out over 50,000 meters this year and plans to massively deploy another 85,000 units this year.
