In Nigeria, there are 11 electricity distribution companies. These companies are saddled with the responsibility of distributing electricity to certain areas. Popularly referred to as Discos, Nigerian distribution companies each cover one or more states.
Meter related issues like acquiring a prepaid meter, checking debt profile, migrating from one billing system to another is usually carried out by these companies. Since it can be inconvenient to travel down to these offices, issues can be resolved by discos through one phone call or an email.
To help make contacting your discos easier, I've compiled a list of the 11 electricity distribution companies in Nigeria, the areas and states each one covers along with their contact details below.
