Joel Nana Kontchou, General Manager of Eneo Cameroon and Gabriel Bengono, General Manager of SIC officially started the implementation of their agreement through the launch at the G IMPAIR Block of camp SIC Makepe this Thursday, 7 February 2019, of a campaign for the installation of prepaid meters in SIC houses Douala. The main goals of the agreement concluded between the two companies comprise:

- installation of prepaid meters when making connections to new houses on apartments blocks
- rehabilitation of electrical installations of buildings by raising them to the new and safer standards
- alignment of new SIC housing projects to new electrical installations standards
Put in place at the request of CLC, the partnership agreement which was signed on the request of SIC seeks to provide practical solutions to a number of problems experienced by residents of these houses. This include among other things, fires related to the manipulation of electrical installations, the cankerworm of unpaid bills left by some former unscrupulous tenants, inaccurate retrieval of consumption indexes, queues in agencies at crowding times, various challenges to electricity’s bills etc..
By implementing this agreement, Eneo Cameroon and SIC are effectively concretizing their common will to prevent fires and protect the public against the dangers of electricity, safeguard electrical installations of these buildings, keep them safe and improve the satisfaction of their common customer who is the SIC tenant.
At the heart of this solution, the installation of prepaid meters in SIC houses in Douala and Yaounde is one of the technological devices for the modernization and transformation of electrical service (see attached file on the Eneo prepaid meter) initiated by Eneo Cameroon . Thus , the company has already begun to respect some of the commitments recently made through the signing of 3th amendment to the Concession Agreement with the State of Cameroon which binds both parties. These are mainly commitments made for the modernization of operations, popularization of smart meters (Post or Prepaid), improvement of safety and the quality of service.
These are guidelines that are in line with the service transformation initiative launched by Eneo Cameroon in the last four years, and one of the components is modernization using new technologies and one component of which is the modernization of infrastructure and customer service
