Acquire prepaid meters in 24 hours without paying for installation, JEDC tells customers
The management of the Jos Electricity Distribution Company (JEDC) has cautioned its customers against making payments for the installation of prepaid meters.
It said customers within its network coverage in Bauchi, Gombe, Benue and Plateau states should not make any form of payment for the installation as it was absolutely free.
Mr Nasir Faskari, the Meter Asset Provider (MAP) Desk Officer of JEDC, who gave the caution on Sunday, urged the customers to report any of their personnel who asked for fees for the installation of prepaid meters.
He further said the process of acquiring a meter with the company entailed the opening of an account to register the customer’s details, adding that, “The procedure for acquiring a meter doesn’t exceed 24 hours.”
He explained that a customer obtaining a single-phase meter would pay N88,000 only, while a customer acquiring a three-phase meter would pay N154,000 only.
