The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC), has installed a new brand 15MVA power transformer at its Nibo Injection substation in Awka, Anambra state as part of its commitment in ensuring that customers enjoy quality power supply.
In a press statement by EEDC’s Head, communications, Mr Emeka Ezeh said the company made a huge investment in the procurement of the transformer as a replacement to the faulty one serving the customers. According to him, by this development, customers that are served through Awka main and Udoka 11KV Feeders would begin to enjoy improved steady power supply.
“This gesture goes to express our readiness to serve our customers despite the prevailing economic challenges. We, therefore, expect our customers to reciprocate by paying their electricity bills.”
Ezeh also used the opportunity to explain that the loss of supply currently experienced in parts of Anambra and Enugu states is due to a fault on the 132KV Transmission line radiating from Onitsha.
As a result of the development, its customers within Awka and Ekwulobia districts in Anambra state are all out of supply. Also affected are the customers in Oji River, Achi, Inyi, Awlaw, Ugwuoba, Akpugo Eze and parts of Nsukka town in Enugu state.
He, however, appealed for patience and understanding, as the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) crew is already working to ensure the fault is cleared and supply restored to the affected areas.
