Stable Electricity is Coming to Lagos and Ogun states

Residents of Lagos state and some areas in Ogun states will start enjoying stable electricity starting from December 2016, the power companies supplying electricity in the area have said.

The Ikeja Electric (IK) formerly the Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company (IKEDC) and the Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) said they have started the enumeration process of their customers and will meet their needs by the end of next year.

Ikeja Electric covers Ikorodu, Oshodi, Ojodu, Alimosho, Abule Egba, and Somolu areas of Lagos State; Eko Electricity is in charge of Festac, Ijora, Lagos Island, Lekki-Pennusula. Ajah and Agbara, an industrial area in Ogun State.

Project Director/Business Leader (AML), Sahara Energy Group Limited, Rotimi Onanuga, said the organisation is implementing the Consumers Enumeration Technical Audit and Asset Mapping (CETAAM) to ascertain the number of its registered consumers and their consumption.

‘’By the end of 2016, the collaboration between Ikeja Electric and its partner Huawei Technology Company to manufacture meters would have yielded positive results. The partnership ensures that at least 20,000 meters are provided to customers of Ikeja Electric as from January 2016.

‘’Through this, we hope to substantially meet the metering needs of our customers before December 2016. We came up with an idea known as ‘Automated Metering Initiative’ in order to provide robust technology; a technology which nobody can tamper with; a technology that would help customers to keep a close tab on power usage, while at the same time, helping Ikeja Electric to distribute electricity well.’’
