In March 2005, the Energy Power Sector Reform Act (EPSRA) came into force leading to the cessation of
the National Electric Power Authority (NEPA). Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution which
were together under NEPA were separated into different business operations in the sector.
In the distribution line, 11 companies (including Eko Disco) emerged, with licenses to distribute electricity to consumers. However, these companies were under the umbrella of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) which was later unbundled in 2013 when power generation and distribution were further privatised giving investors more or total ownership.
Based on these reforms, Eko Electricity Distribution Plc has been effectively supplying power to the southern part of Lagos State and the Agbara community in Ogun State. These licensed areas are segmented into 10 districts - Lekki, Ibeju, Islands, Orile, Ijora, Apapa, Mushin, Festac, Ojo and Agbara. Receiving between 11 and 15 percent of the total energy allocation from the national grid, the Company procures bulk electricity from Akangba, Ajah and Ikeja West transmission stations.
Eko Disco has a track record of excellent performance in the sector, particularly in the distribution space. This ranges from top-notch delivery of customer service to reliable power supply to its customers. In October 2020, Eko Disco achieved a technological landmark by becoming the first electricity distribution company to launch the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition - Distribution Management System (SCADA-DMS) in Nigeria. Hence, the Company consistently receives top ratings from the regulator of the industry, the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).
