1. I need a pre-paid meter, what do I do?

Visit your District office as shown on your bill and apply for a pre-paid meter, or fill an application form online on our website. The Pre-paid meters will be made available to you once the process is completed.


2. I have not had light for days. Who should I complain to and how can I locate the office?

Call the hotline phone number of the District shown in your bill. If not satisfied, follow up with a written complaint to the Customer Care Unit (CCU) of your District. To locate the Customer Care Office:

  • Identify the District office as shown on your bill.
  • Call the telephone number of your District for details.


3. What is Fixed Charge and why is it part of the bill?

The fixed charge is a part of a customer’s monthly electricity charge. The fixed charge is intended to allow for the recovery of the costs associated with the fixed or permanent investments (metering & accessories, transformers & accessories and ICT infrastructure) for the efficient supply of power.


4. EEDC bills me on estimation and always gives me “crazy” bills even when there is no light, why?

Before July 2014, energy was randomly allocated to customers without meter thereby giving rise to “crazy” billing. Effective from August 2014, EEDC has implemented the Estimated Billing Methodology as stipulated by NERC. This method ensures that customers of a tariff class without meters are billed with the average consumption of all functional metered customers of the same tariff class, on the same transformer and same feeder. This method is fair, and eliminates “crazy billing” for the unmetered customers.

EEDC is currently planning for mass deployment of energy meters to each and every customer. Once that is done, customers will be billed on metered consumption only.

When there is no supply (light), there will be no consumption and when there is no consumption, there is no energy billed except for the outstanding debts.


5. I have a high bill and the payment I made did not reflect in my bill, what do I do? 

You can call the Customer Care Office to lodge your complaints. The Customer Care officer will then invite you to the office for reconciliation. Reconciliation is a process of justifying the customer’s billing on one hand and payment confirmation on the other. Billing justification entails verifying the energy consumption pattern, correct tariff classification, fixed charge component and vat. Payment confirmation also entails validating the amount paid against the billing. The customer is required to come along with his electricity bills.

 

6. Where can I pay my bills?

You can pay your bills at our District cash offices,  Banks  and Online. For details, click here.


7. Power supply in our area has become so epileptic, what do we do?

However, EEDC is currently working on ensuring that her esteemed customers are provided with quality and quantity supply as much as possible. We are deploying more transformers into the system and maintaining our networks.


8. Is it the responsibility of customers to provide or repair transformers that are faulty?

No, it is not the responsibility of our customers to provide or repair transformers. Faulty transformers are to be restored by the EEDC, it is also the responsibility of EEDC to provide transformers. However, where customers wish to partner with EEDC they should come up with such partnership proposal for consideration.  

 

9. When I applied for meter in your company, I was asked to pay processing fees. What is the processing fee used for?

Customers no longer pay for meter or processing fees. However customers seeking new connection would be required to purchase the connection accessories of the right quality and quantity. These quantities are given to them by EEDC but on no account should any customer give any EEDC staff money for whatever reasons.

If any EEDC staff demand for any money under whatever guise that staff should be reported to the Network Manager of the District.
