Electricity coy installs 100 transformers in South-East

The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) has begun the installation of 100 transformers within states in the South-East to boost electricity supply during the Yuletide festivities.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the states are Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo.

EEDC’s Head of Communications, Mr Eugene Anionwo, told NAN in Enugu on Tuesday that the move would further strengthen electricity supply in the zone in 2016 and beyond.

Anionwo said that the company had also begun repairs of its distribution equipment in sub-stations and streets throughout the zone.

“We have decided not to go on holidays in order to quickly respond to complaints from our most cherished customers this Yuletide.

“We have started installation of 100 transformers in the five states in the zone especially where the transformers had gone bad for some time now, “ he said.

The head of communications also appealed to the company’s customers to pay their December bills and settle other outstanding payments for the company to serve them better.

Anionwo said electric consumers’ prompt payment would give the company the leverage to settle the problem of transmission of power to consumers.

“Even as we appeal for them to promptly pay their bills and other outstanding, the EEDC would continue to solve complaints of all our cherished customers.

“Our doors are open for complaints as well as information on our installations and cables in the zone, “ he said.
