Abstract: Today, the world is fast moving in the area of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). With the use of Spatial Technology and subsequent development of Web GlS evolving, the operations, services and management of several industries in the world over are flourishing. Electricity as utility is inimical to the socio-economic development of any country. The generation, transmission and distribution of power electricity come with lots of challenges. This study aimed at using Spatial Technology to enhance ECG business. Adentan Municipality was used as a study area and data on user requirement was gathered. Geomatic measurement techniques were employed in spatial data acquisition. The task of development of ECG-GlS Customer Information System was put into data acquisition, data processing, geo-database development and system design phases respectively. A user friendly ECG-GlS Customer Information System comprising of four modules, Customer Activity, Customer Database, Geo-database and System settings was developed and deployed. The system is centrally web based, dynamic and has the ability to track ECG customers’ information on billing with ease.
