The Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) uses the Meter Asset Providers (MAP) scheme to procure and install prepaid meters for its customers.

What is the Meter Asset Provider (MAP) scheme all about?

The MAP scheme was introduced by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) to allow easy procurement of prepaid meters and to put an end to arbitrary billings. The EKEDC explained the MAP scheme as a framework "designed to fast track closure of the end-user metering gap with a goal of eliminating the practice of "estimated billing " excepting exceptional cases envisaged under the regulation".
