…says the new product initiative is introduced to relieve customers of some debt burden
The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company PLC (EEDC) has introduced a new product known as Accelerated Settlement of Arrears Project (ASAP), designed to assist its customers with outstanding arrears clear them while enjoying attractive discounts.
Head, Corporate Communications, Emeka Ezeh, in a statement on Sunday said the initiative is introduced to relieve customers of some debt burden in view of nation’s challenging economic situation.
The statement reads, “The uniqueness of this product is that it offers graded discounts, ranging from 25% (for one-time payment), 20% (for three months payment by installment), and 35% (for debts of 5 years and above), and appeals to only Non-Maximum Demand (NMD) customers.
“To benefit from this program, the customer’s account must not have benefited from any previous discount scheme offered by EEDC and the arrears have to be within the period before 1st January 2023.
“In addition, customers must have subscribed to MAP metering, with Demand Note issued, as a conscious way of ensuring that debts are not allowed to accrue further.
“This initiative is introduced by EEDC to relieve its customers of some debt burden, considering the very challenging economic situation in the country.
“It will be recalled that on December 31st 2022, EEDC ended its Arrears One Time Settlement Scheme (OTS), a related initiative targeted at its customers with outstanding arrears.
