The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) has said the company loses nearly 20 per cent of its monthly revenue to the poor payments of electricity bills in its franchise area.
Speaking at a customers’ forum it organised in Life Camp, Abuja to sensitise customers on the benefits of the present tariff system, the Regional Manager, FCT North, Mrs. Hauwa Kulu Mohammed said the company has projected the metering of all customers within two years. She disclosed that despite the fixed charge removal the company still pays for capacity charge to the Market Operator of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN).
“Although people say they have been over billed now but the company has not overbilled anyone because we have not been able to collect more than 83% of the bills monthly,” Hauwa said.
Some customers from her region comprising Life Camp, Gwarinpa, Katampe, Bwari and Kubwa in the FCT expressed their concerns over poor power supply.
A residential customer, Monday Musa from Ugwan Shawo in Karmo area in FCT said: “We are not getting the energy supply as it is supposed to be. We are paying higher amount but there is no light.”
Comrade Joseph Uchechukwu from another axis of Karmo said his area has no poles and conductors, so they loop from house-to-house.  “We have written to the AEDC but they have not solved the problem even when they come to collect their bills,” he added.
