About us:

PHCN Eko Distribution Zone came into existence as a direct result of the Electric Power Sector Reform (EPSR) bill that was signed into law on March 11 2005. The bill seeks to provide for the formation of successor companies to take over the functions, assets, liabilities and staff of the National Electric Power Authority (NEPA), develop competitive electricity markets; establish the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission; provide for the licensing and regulation of the generation, transmission, distribution and supply of electricity; enforce such matters as performance standards, consumer rights and obligation; provide for the determination of tariffs; and to provide for matters connected with or incidental to the foregoing (NBPE, 2010). The EPSR bill incorporated, on 31 May 2005, an initial holding company called Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) that has taken over all NEPA assets and liabilities. PHCN has 18 successors companies from  NEPA.  NEPA was divided into its generation plants, transmission operations and distribution centers. The successors companies consist of 6-generation companies (GENCO), 1 transmission company (TRANSYCO) and 11 distribution companies (DISCO) (NBPE, 2010). The Eko Electricity Company is the largest load serving entity, by demand Megawatt, among the distribution companies. The Eko Distribution  and the neighboring Ikeja Distribution were part of old Lagos Distribution Zone of NEPA.  The company strives to provide a high power quality electrical energy in the safest and least-cost way without sacrificing reliability and stability of the distribution grid
