According to the Jalingo regional Business manager, Mr. Christopher Kwasi, when the meters are installed, billing circle would become more accurate as consumers will only account for the energy they consume and transformers will no longer be overloaded.


"We have also procured operational vehicles, transformers and other working tools to meet the needs on ground and satisfy our customers", he added.


Mr. Kwasi further said the procured meters that would be installed is smart and can be monitored from the YEDC office.
