The Enugu Electricity Distribution Plc (EEDC) has begun intensive revenue drive across its franchise area. The exercise, which effectively commenced on 25th January, will end today Saturday, 29th January, 2022.
This was made known by EEDC’s Head of Corporate Communications, Mr. Emeka Ezeh.
According to Ezeh, the revenue drive is to enable the company cover up for the lost days experienced in the month of January, occasioned by the imposed sit-at-home order and insecurity situation in the South East, a development that has impacted greatly on its revenue and efficient operation.
The exercise entailed visits by officials of the company to its customers for payment of their energy bills, as well as disconnection of those that are indebted.
This move became necessary to enable EEDC effectively sustain its operations and provide quality services to its customers. In addition, it will enable the company pay for energy it imported and meet up with its obligations to the Market Operators and other stakeholders.
EEDC, therefore, appeals to its esteemed customers to cooperate with the officials that will be visiting their premises during the period of the drive.
“It is pertinent to note that the power sector cannot effectively operate if energy bills are not paid by customers”, Ezeh affirmed.
To avoid being disconnected, customers are advised to visit the EEDC cash offices nearest to them or any of the collection agents within their locality, to pay their bills.
Payments can also be made through the various online channels, these include: EEDC Connect, Energy Pay (via EEDC website: www.enugudisco.com), bank apps, among others.
EEDC assured its customers of its commitment to delivering quality service to them, and count on their support during this revenue drive exercise.
