Eko Electrical energy Distribution Firm (EKEDC) and Ikeja Electrical energy Distribution Firm (IKEDC) have commenced implementation of the brand new Service Reflective Tariff Plan.
The companies made the announcement on Tuesday.
They cited the Nigerian Electrical energy Regulatory Fee (NERC) approval of the Multi 12 months Tariff Order 2020.
The order took impact September 1.
EKEDC Company Communications Supervisor, Godwin Idemudia, informed NAN that clients who loved lower than 12 hours of provide wouldn’t be affected by the brand new tariff.
The spokesman defined that the regime would be certain that costs charged by EKEDC was honest to clients.
The implementation will present a path for transitioning to full service-based cost-reflective tariffs by July 2021, reclassify and disaggregate clients on the premise of agreed commitments on high quality of service.
“It’s to make sure that clients pay tariffs which are commensurate with the ability availability and repair supply commitments by EKEDC”, Idemudia mentioned.
IKEDC in an announcement mentioned the brand new order clustered its clients into 5 Tariff Service Bands and revised the tariff payable by clients.
“That is measured by the common availability of energy delivered over a month interval; factoring the frequency and period of interruptions and different service parameters. The order shall stay in pressure till a brand new MYTO Order is issued.
“Within the interim, please word that the tariffs for patrons in Bands D and E (clients with lower than 12 hours provide) shall stay frozen till there’s enchancment in service ranges.”
IKEDC added that the previous tariff for patrons in Bands D and E shall be maintained till Ikeja Electrical improves service high quality.
