The Eko Distribution Company (EKDC) has concluded a bilateral agreement with Egbin Power Station for supply of 100 mega watts of electricity to boost power supply within its network, Leadership reports.
The agreement aims at ensuring effective power supply that would enhance the current cost reflective tariff. Mr Oladele Amoda, Managing Director of Eko Disco who made this known during the company’s stakeholder’s town hall consultative customer’s forum said “We have concluded bilateral arrangements with Egbin for supply of 100 megawatts. Customers within Lekki, Ajah, Ibeju and environs will benefit greatly from this special plan”.
The additional 100 megawatts from Egbin power station are intended to boost power supply within Eko Disco’s operations. According to Amoda the energy would come directly to Eko Disco without passing through the national grid, while customers will be expected to pay slightly more than regular customers for a more stable supply of electricity. Amoda therefore appealed to customers to embrace the new electricity tariff, adding that the new tariff is customer friendly.
