New electricity tariff: KEDCO begins implementation

The management of Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) says it has begun the implementation of the new service reflective tariff as approved by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).

The Head, Corporate Communications, KEDCO Ibrahim Sani Shawai, according to a statement he signed and issued on Thursday in Kano, said the tariff shall apply to all customers with pre-paid meters from September 1, 2020. Customers with post-paid bills shall receive bills under the new tariff in October 2020. 

He disclosed that this initiative will boost power supply to all businesses and households, and ensure quick resolution of grievances, in line with KEDCO’s commitment to all its customers across Kano, Katsina and Jigawa States.

The new tariff regime will be strictly based on service availability and quality supply. Thus, all customers shall be required to pay for their consumption based on hours of supply they enjoy. Under the new service reflective tariff, customers have been classed into five tariff bands – Band A, B, C, D and E. Minimum hours of supply across these tariff bands range between four and 20 hours.

He hinted that customers under Band A shall receive 20 hours of power supply while those on Band B shall receive 16 hours minimum supply. Band C customers shall enjoy a minimum of 12 hours. All customers are expected to pay for the supply as per rates approved by NERC. However, tariffs for customers under Bands D and E  (4 and 8 hours supply) have been frozen at the previous amount.

The management however assured all customers that KEDCO shall adhere to the new service reflective tariff regime as approved and mandated by NERC to ensure that customers get committed service delivery in line with established standards.


Lessons From Fani-Kayode’s ‘Stupid’
The Femi Fani-Kayode experience was needless and plainly avoidable. But something tells me it won’t be the last. There is the feeling today in power circles that because of the ascendancy of the Internet and its platforms of social engagements, the press as we knew it is now impotent and could be humiliated and called stupid without consequences. The truth of the media’s undying powers should be clear in what Femi just went through…
