Ikeja Electric has started roll out of smart meters under its metering programme called Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI) that targets installation of 300,000 meters over the next three years.
Its Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Abiodun Ajifowobaje said the roll out represents a remarkable step in the company’s quest for redefining service delivery in the sector. “This development resonates with our new spirit, new drive and new energy identity, as we strive to create value for our customers,” he added
Ajifowobaje told reporters yesterday in Lagos that the meter roll out started in September with the installation of 6000 meters after the successful completion of the pilot scheme of the advanced meter installation phase which began in June this year.
He said the power firm is set to commence the second phase of the project; the mass roll out of the meters. These meters are designed to enhance efficient energy usage and transparent billing in real time, he added.
According to him, the company aims to install 10,000 meters this month, and will be able to attain the peak monthly installation of 15,000 meters by December.
