In a statement announcing the company’s plans to deploy 200,000 smart meters to its customers across the region, its Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Robert Dickerman lamented that metering customers and energy theft remained major challenges facing most of Distribution Companies (DisCos).

He said the deployment of the meters is in fulfilment of the firm’s commitment to meter all its customers.

He said the company has also awarded contracts to three firms-Mojec International Limited, MBH Power and Genus Power Infrastructure Limited, to enable it achieve the target.

The project is in continuation of its ongoing metering of Maximum Demand (MD) customers, and the Credited Advance Payment for Metering Implementation (CAPMI) designed to enable willing customers within the network obtain meter by paying to EEDC, which also installs the meters for them.
