VRA begin installation of new meters in the Northern Region


The Volta River Authority in the northern region is embarking on an installation of new prepaid meter exercises to replace the credit meter and the flat rate systems.  The replacement exercise was to help reduce, what the authorities described as, huge task in its revenue collection which is used to measure its performance.
Unlike the already prepaid meter where customers have to insert a credit card into the meter, they do not need to insert the card but just a flash on the face of the meter and units are captured.
In an interview with Zaa News, the Area Manager of VRA in the northern region, Francis   Babereyir said his outfit has received about 40,000 new prepaid meters for the pilot project in the Tamale metropolis, Savelugu, Pong-Tamale, Salaga and Nyankpala.
The installation exercise which started early this month, according to Mr. Babereyir, will help VRA prevent huge revenue losses it has incurred over the years due to non-payment of electricity bills.  He said the prepaid meters are conducive for the VRA, adding that customers under the prepaid system will not have to pay what they normally call suppressed monthly bills.
The area manager warns customers to desist from tempering with the meters or face the law if caught. He added that, past lessons has broguht upon improvements on the terminals of the meters and an anti-temper security device has also been installed in the new one.  He urged customers to always contact VRA about any fault on the meter.
Mr Babereyir appealed to customers in the northern region to cooperate with VRA in order to provide better  quality service.
