Arrangements have been concluded by the Management of Jos Electricity Distribution Plc to commence a new tariff regime on July 1, 2020.
According to a statement issued by the Head, Corporate Communications, Dr Friday Adakole Elijah, the management disclosed that the review became necessary due to the absence of subsidy in the Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry (NESI) market.
It, however, pointed out that lack of subsidy in the market had tremendously hampered the sustainability of service improvement in the energy sector, adding that the new tariff regime would be predicated on energy service availability and quality of supply.
The statement posited that customers shall be required to pay for their consumptions based on hours of supply they enjoyed, adding that with the new tariff which is now cost and service reflective, customers that enjoyed premium services were expected to pay higher tariff based on the guaranteed hours of availability and service quality.
In view of the above, the management said customers have been categorised into groups (Band) A, B, C, D and E with A enjoying 20 hours and above and E enjoying 4 hours and above energy.
On the actual tariff cost, Jos Disco urged customers to bear with company, disclosing that as soon as the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission releases the tariff cost, Jos Disco would unveil it to the public.
