IBEDC Commences Metering Of Distribution Transformers

The Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company, IBEDC, has announced the commencement of massive deployment of Distribution Transformer, DT, meters to all public distribution transformers under its franchise using an Advanced Metering Infrastructure, AMI, solution for accuracy.

John Ayodele, the Chief Operating Officer, COO, of the  company stated in a statement on Monday that the metering  was part of the company's  drive to provide quality service to  customers under it's franchise areas.

Ayodele stated that; “With the installation of these meters and the deployment of the AMI technology, IBEDC will be able to measure the actual energy consumption of customers in real-time. 

"This initiative will greatly benefit customers as the smart meters will ensure better energy accounting and accountability, thereby making estimated bills more accurate and reliable. 

"It will enable us to reduce our response time to fault clearing and improve on our operational efficiency as the AMI solution can detect if there is a fault with a Transformer and communicate this information in real time to our control room.

The COO noted that the company's technical team and authorised contractors have already began the deployment of these smart meters and configuring some of the transformers to enable them be compatible with the AMI solution.  

Ayodele noted that; “We are appealing for the cooperation and understanding of our esteemed customers as our technical officers will require access to transformers that are situated within customers’ premises as well as also those safeguarded by communities.  

"It has been our mission to always serve our customers better, and this initiative is a step further to ensuring this commitment.”
