In the statement, Idemudia explained that metering the distribution transformers (DT) will enable the company to determine the exact amount of energy consumed in an area, and that customers will be billed based on the readings from the meters installed at the transformers. According to him, the effort is being done to bridge the metering gap of customers who are yet to have individual meters. This is to significantly increase the accuracy of the bills distributed and help the company in its efforts to curb energy theft.

    It is only pre-paid meter that can bring permanent relief to consumers. Metering transformers to determine consumption rate still put consumers at the mercy of the company.
