Electricity Hike: Customers Without 12-Hour Supply Daily Exempted – NERC by ogododo: 12:11am On Sep 12
The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission on Friday insisted that electricity Distribution Companies must not increase tariffs of customers enjoying less than 12 hours of power supply daily.

Mr Dafe Akpeneye, NERC Commissioner, Legal Licensing and Compliance, made the clarification during the regulatory agency’s online town hall meeting with customers on the new electricity tariff regime.

The DisCos had on September 1 announced the implementation of new Service Reflective Tariff Plan across their franchise areas.

The DisCos said the classes of customers had been categorised into five bands with bands D and E who were not enjoying 12 hours daily power supply not affected by the new tariff plan.


However, Akpeneye, who was responding to claims by some customers that the DisCos were not adhering to the increment terms, maintained that those below 12 hours supply daily should not experience any increment.

He explained that the hours and bands were decided by the commission after consultations but customers were assigned to the bands by the DisCos.

Akpeneye said, ”Anyone who is enjoying less than 12 hours of electricity must not have their tariffs increased.


“Customers who receive electricity service below the band they have been assigned can have the DisCos move them to the actual band of electricity service they receive.

“Unhappy? Contest the band classification you have been assigned.”

He said in order to protect unmetered customers from exploitation by the DisCos, NERC came up with “Parity with Neighbours”.

“This is the principle we are applying with unmetered customers. It basically means as an unmetered customer, you cannot be charged more than your metered neighbour,” the commissioner said.


Akpeneye also disclosed that NERC had mandated all DisCos to invest in infrastructure in order to increase power supply to customers.

Una dey mad, with the pricing on Ikeja Electric, what's the difference?? These guys are just trying to justify these nonsense.

These people are collecting these monies, sometimes even penalise Discos but since the privatisation, has TCN which is still controlled by the FG done any upgrade on their network

If that is the case, I will like to know what will happen to those customers have been receiving over 12 hours of supply who have now been charged the new tariff. If they now start receiving less than 12 hours of supply. Will the increment be suspended for them till supply improves?

This new tariff regime has not been well thought out at all and it is just to make life more difficult to Nigerians.

What I expected the government to do is to mandate the Discos to use the remaining part of this year to massively distribute prepaid meters while engaging in public awareness campaign on the new tariff regime which can then start off at the beginning of next year.

But then in this country, doing the simplest of things right is always a difficult task. Quite annoying. ☹️☹️☹️

It's a lie from the pit of hell.
My house is unmetered.
We pay 3k a month previously..
Guess what?
Our bill for September they brought some days ago is 13k cry.
Asked them why? They said government has increased electricity tariff.
They will have to come and disconnect their light last.
We are our greatest enemies in this country.

Most people don't even have lights and some don't even get more than 3 hrs in 4 days. Even when Phcn brings the light, 5 mins or 10 mins intervals, they will be taking it on and off. Most people cannot even pump their water with the light they give.
They have spoilt most home appliances of people.


Nonsensical.
