The Management of Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO), has urged some of its customers who are rejecting the use of meters to desist from such act.
The company said distribution of meters under the ongoing zero phase is free and should not be bought by its customers.
It said embracing the use of meter will help customers to monitor their energy consumption.
According to the Management, the metering drive initiative being pursued by KEDCO and Federal Government is a conscious strategy to end estimated billing, hence it is free.
“We are herewith informing all our customers that metering in any household under our franchise remain free; as such no one should pay anybody for installations,” a statement obtained by PlatinumPost and signed by Ibrahim Shawai, Head, Corporate Communications, KEDCO, said on Tuesday.
“In this regard, kindly report anyone KEDCO staff inclusive that insists on payment for meter installation to the nearest KEDCO office or any security agencies for necessary action.
” We also encourage all those who are rejecting meters in any way to desist from such as metering for us in KEDCO is the way forward to ending estimated billing, while helping consumers to monitor their energy consumption,” the statement added.
