Electricity company offers 30% discount on unpaid bills
Electricity consumers owing the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) unpaid bills are to enjoy 30 per cent discount if they pay before December 31.
The bonanza, code-named “Arrears One-Time Settlement (OTS) Scheme’’ is to encourage the settlement of the bills and also a gesture to mark the Yuletide, EEDC’s spokesman, Mr. Emeka Ezeh, said, yesterday, in Enugu.
“The OTS scheme is an initiative introduced by EEDC to assist customers to defray their accumulated bills.
“Commercial and residential customers, bulk communities, metered and un-metered customers are eligible for the discount scheme.
“Interested customers are to visit the `OTS Coordinator’ at the district office responsible for the area they are residing or call our Call Centre on 084700100 for further inquiries,’’ he said.
Ezeh, however, warned that those refusing to pay stood the risk of supply disconnection.
He said the company had started its network maintenance to deliver steady power supply before, during and after the Yuletide. He reminded consumers that bills for November had been distributed and enjoined them to pay up promptly to avoid supply disconnection.
Ezeh expressed appreciation of consumers’ cooperation and stressed that steady power supply would be guaranteed, only if they paid their bills.
