Speaking on the roll-out, Head of Corporate Communications, Ikeja Electric, Felix Ofulue said;

“In line with NERC regulations, customers are expected to pay for meters. Through the online process, customers are to abide the rules and regulation guiding the metering process and they should not pay cash to anyone or fall prey to unscrupulous elements who may want to take advantage of the scheme to fleece customers. They will be advised on the designated channels for payment.”

While explaining the process, he noted that every
customer is expected to go through the Know Your Customer (KYC) process and
also agree on settlement of the outstanding debt. After this, account survey
will then be carried out before payment for prepaid meter is made. The meters
will be provided and installed within 10 working days of payment.

Ofulue also advised customers who
dispute their unsettled post-paid to take advantage of the various repayment
options available during the KYC process. Outstanding balance can also be
rolled over into the customer’s prepaid account and paid in instalments.

According to him, the stipulated cost of a
single-phase meter is N38, 850 while a three-phase meter is N70, 350. These are
all inclusive of VAT.
