THE Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) has said that it has started upgrading and migrating customers as part of its templates to improving electricity supply in the entire South-East zone.
The new policy will affect customers served by 40 feeders in Abia, Anambra, Enugu and Imo States, with Abia and Imo customers accounting for 72.5 per cent of the circuit.
The upgrade and migration, which involve more investment on electricity installation and boosters, will improve electricity power from its least supply axis from about six hours to over 13 hours daily.
A release issued by EEDC Head of Corporate Communications, Emeka Ezeh, said the policy will kick off on November 1.
According to Ezeh, the policy will bring about additional seven-hour electricity supply across board in South-East zone, apart from attesting to EEDC’s commitment to consistent investment in its network and improvement of service quality.
“The various investments made by EEDC on its network have continued to yield positive results as customers served by these affected feeders will begin to enjoy guaranteed daily supply above 13 hours from November, this year. “Customers are therefore urged to desist from acts capable of undermining these positive efforts embarked on by EEDC. There is no doubt that the customers migrated will begin to spend less on alternative power as the resources used in maintaining and running their generating sets will be used to take care of other needs. EEDC remains committed to delivering on its promise of providing improved services to its esteemed customers but counts on their support to actualise this,” Ezeh said.
