Ikeja Electric Distribution Company on Thursday said it was no longer taking orders from customers for new prepaid meters until it has cleared the backlog of requests.

IE’s head of prepaid revenue management and metering, Morenikeji Amosun, disclosed this during a virtual stakeholders’ meeting on Thursday saying the company could not attend to customers’ requests for prepaid meters for a few months before the price change.

He said the company is working hard to ensure that those who had paid for the meters get it soon, urging customers to exercise patience.

“We have a backlog…we’re not taking new orders.

“It will be unfair for those that have paid money before the price increase to not receive their meters and those who will pay N88,000 will be getting it,” he said.

Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission last Wednesday approved an increase in the prices of prepaid electricity meters.

The commission said a single-phase meter would now cost N81,975.16k, instead of the previous price of N58,661.69k; and the price of a three-phase meter was increased to N143,836.10k from N109,684.36k.

NERC said the approved meter prices are exclusive of value-added tax.
