An Electricity Distribution Company (DISCO) in Lagos State has stressed that except consumers pay for energy they consume, it would be extremely difficult to sustain supply of electricity.

Addressing reporters on Monday, the Chief Executive of Egbin Power Plant, Kolawole Adeshina, said it would be difficult for distribution companies to survive if consumers without prepaid meter were asked not to pay their bills.

Mr Adeshina assured consumers of a massive roll out of repaid meter numbering over 300,000, which he said would help the distribution companies (DISCO) checkmate energy theft.

“We have signed a metering contract of 106 million dollars. For a company that has not been paid and you are signing a metering contract, invariably, you expect to be paid.

“You are now saying that if those metres are not in place, which can’t be in place in one day that payments will not be made. It cannot work and our system will fail.”

He, however, told reporters that he was against inefficient and estimated billing of electricity consumers, a development that had led to some consumer’s refusal to pay their bills.

“I do not want and I don’t subscribe to people inefficiently being billed.

“No! You should not be billed beyond the power you have consumed because it is equally not right.”  (Channels TV)
