Enugu Electricity Distribution Company set to put a stop to modern electricity theft


Enugu Electricity Distribution Company EEDC,  has introduced a Security Barcode in its electricity bills to check fake bills, manipulations and other forms of scientific electricity theft.

EEDC’s Head of Communications, Emeka Ezeh, said this in an interview with newsmen in Enugu.

Ezeh said the modified bill and its special outlook was part of the company’s continuous efforts to introduce initiatives geared toward ensuring enjoyable customer experience.

He said the new features on the new bill included a summary of previous balance and last payment made by the customer, a barcode, which is a security feature.

Ezeh said as part of the initiative to create technological driven innovations, the company would soon deliver electricity bills to customers via email prior to their receiving the hard copy.
