According to AEDC, customers in Kubwa, Gbazango, Bwari, Suleja and Zuma areas only can contact their office at Plot 698, Ini Bassey Street Off Arab Road, Kubwa, for their metering.
Geeky Nigeria reports that The MAP scheme is an initiative of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), as it aims allow more electricity customers acquire prepaid meters so as to stop the issues involved in estimated billing.
Meter Asset Providers (MAP) have been accredited and mandated to finance, install, maintain and replace end user electricity meters where applicable.
