Why DISCOs are phasing out analogue meters, by EKEDC chief

Non-Functioning  of analogue meters, shortage of spare parts and  advent of smart meters, among others, are reasons the Distribution Companies (DisCos) are phasing out analogue meters, The Nation has learnt.

It was gathered that many of the analogue meters are old, thereby making it difficult for the power distribution firms to get accurate reading  from them.

The Chief Executive Officer, Eko Electricity Distribution Company, (EKEDC) Dr.  Oladele Amoda, said most analog meters are not working well, because they are old.

He said the meters are obsolete, dysfunctional and prove difficult to read, adding that the development informed the decision of power  firms’ plan to phase out the meters in line with the agreement they signed with the Federal Government during the privatisation of the power sector.
