Supply prepaid metres to consumers, govt urges Discos

The Federal Government has ordered electricity distribution companies (DisCos) in the country to supply prepaid meters to electric consumers without further delay.

Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola (SAN) gave the order at the end of his third monthly meeting with operators in the power sector at the Ugwuaji Transmission Station, Enugu, yesterday.

He said the meeting discussed the issue of availability of gas, volatility of foreign exchange market, financial capability of DisCos as well as difficulties in pricing gas in dollars instead of the local currency among others, adding that the DisCos must live up to their responsibilities of meeting the demands of their customers in the area of supplying pre-paid meters to them to avoid estimated billings.
