The Managing Director/CEO, Jos Electricity Distribution Company (JEDC) Plc, Alhaji Mohammed Gidado Modibo, has disclosed that the company is targeting about one million customer base in its franchise states of Benue, Bauchi, Gombe and Plateau by the end of 2018 from the current over 472,000, THISDAY reports.
He also revealed that the company is planning to provide statistical meters on transformers to checkmate the incessant overbilling of customers in Bauchi and environs. The statistical meters are intended to handle issues affecting energy supply and to curtail indebtedness as well as ensure fairness in the distribution of bills to JED customers.
Speaking Wednesday during JED’s customer consultative forum in Bauchi, Modibo warned that the company would prosecute consumers engaged in the habit of bypassing meters, describing them as “energy thieves who want to consume energy without paying for it, and would be prosecuted in accordance with the law”.
