An indigenous meter manufacturing company, Sebrud Consortiums has said prepaid meter producers in Nigeria have production capacity to meet demand of electricity sector.
The company’s Managing Director Chisom Nwangwu said local meter producers should not be blamed for the shortage of the product for electricity consumers in Nigeria.
Nigerians have continued to complain over the inability of Electricity Distribution Companies (DisCos) to provide enough prepaid electricity meters for consumers.
Nwangwu explained that the Awka-based firm with its 400, 000 installed capacity is ready to work with the 11 electricity distribution companies in Nigeria to help to realize the Federal Government’s objective of having all customers metered.
“Capacity is not the problem, we are producing and the products are there, we have the capacity to supply whatever is demanded by the distribution companies.
“All that is needed is for them to contact us and place orders and they will get the meters, we are ready to work with the 11 electricity distribution companies,’’ he said.
