It is also responsible for the entire meter to cash process (M2C) including but not limited to metering, billing, revenue collection and customer services.
Abuja Electricity Distribution Plc seeks to appoint reputable Meter Service Provider(s) (MSPs) to undertake the services as part of its mass metering roll-out programme for small power users (SPU).
