Cameroon: Prepaid electricity meters to go operational soon, says Eneo

The company Eneo, concession holder of public electricity services in Cameroon and owned by the British Investment Fund Actis, has just presented the Cameroonian government with specimens and characteristics of the prepayment card electricity meters that it intends to progressively introduce in the country.

According to our sources, this electricity company has already installed these smart meters in areas of the Cameroonian economic capital such as Bali or even Bonapriso, in a pilot phase, whose results have been rather satisfactory to date.

These meters, topped up as is the case with credit for mobile telephone communication, will now oblige Eneo clients to pay before use. This equipment will at the same time allow users to control their consumption of electricity, and avoid the hassles due to mistakes in readings of traditional meters, etc.

On the side of the electricity company, thanks to these meters introduced in the Cameroonian market, it should have fewer reasons to deal with debt recoveries, whose amounts generally reach billions of francs FCfa ; and erase its expenses tied to the monthly burden of the meters.

On the governmental level, if the Ministry of Commerce favours this technological advance introduced in the electricity sector, this ministerial department has, according to our sources, requested more assurance on the reliability of the equipment, the maintenance policy to be applied, but above all the fate awaiting jobs related to the monthly task of electricity meters.
