Leading Electricity Distribution Company, Ikeja Electric Plc (IE) has fully commenced the rollout of meters under the Meter Asset Provider (MAP) scheme, to all unmetered customer across its network.

In the first phase, which culminated at the end of July, metering was restricted to only customers in Ikorodu, Abule-Egba and Shomolu Business Units. However, from the beginning of this month, the exercise has been extended to customers in Ikeja, Akowonjo and Oshodi Business Units.

The MAP scheme is in line with the Federal Government’s commitment to bridging the metering gap. It entails the empowerment of third party companies identified Meter Asset Providers, by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), to procure and install meters for electricity consumers under this scheme.

Ikeja Electric, alongside one of its MAPs, Mojec Metering Asset Company, today, held a Customers Engagement Forum to sensitise customers in Shomolu Business Unit on the registration process, survey, payment and installation of meters.

Speaking at the event, which was held in Gbagada, Lagos, the Chief Operating Officer of Ikeja Electric, Mrs. Folake Soetan, reiterated the company’s commitment to leverage the opportunity provided by the MAP scheme to close the metering gap across its network and also remove estimated billing.
