The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company PLC (EEDC) has notified its customers that by 24th November 2024, all prepaid meters in its network will cease to accept credit tokens, unless they are upgraded.
This was disclosed by the company’s Head of Corporate Affairs, Mr Emeka Eze in a statement on Monday.
This is as a result of a software upgrade which will be affecting all Standard Transfer Specification (STS) compliant prepaid meters across the globe.
The upgrade will be implemented through a special ‘reset token’ known as “Key Change Token” (KCT), which will be loaded on their meters to have them upgraded.
Customers of EEDC that are using prepaid meters are therefore advised to ensure that their meters are upgraded before the set date of 24th November 2024, to avoid losing them.
The management of EEDC appealed to its customers to remain calm and not panic, as they would be notified of the process and modalities for the upgrade.
