Following delays caused by the recent picketing action of Labour, metering activities have commenced in earnest with the survey of several feeders in the network.
The installation requirements which are crucial to the successful metering exercise often rely on detailed surveys to ensure that the facility in question has no anomalies which may damage the equipment or compromise its readings. The surveys, which are carried out by third party personnel will basically cross check and analyze quality of premises wiring, grounding systems and voltage quality. Other data that are reviewed include load current into the premises, electrostatic discharge and sometimes even humidity and temperature of the environment where the meter is to be installed.
Speaking on the development, IE’s Head, Corporate Communications, Felix Ofulue, noted that Feeders around Ijaiye Ojokoro, Agbado, Alimosho, Agege, Abule Egba, Ogba, Opebi, Agogo, Odogunyan, Ago Okotoa, Amuwo, Ajao-Airport Road, Domino, Sholanke among others were currently undergoing the evaluation process. Ofulue called on residents to provide the necessary co-operation to the technical teams even as he called on other residents to exercise patience as the exercise would reach all and sundry.
Ofulue, also confirmed that Forthright Estate under Ojudu UT as well as Amusa Ishola under Ijegun UT were already being metered.
