EDDC reduces electricity tariff for Band A feeders



Electricity tariff reduction

In a significant development for electricity consumers in the South-East, the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) has announced a reduction in electricity tariff for customers in the Band A feeders.

This decision follows a directive from the National Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) instructing all 11 Distribution Companies (Discos) to adjust their tariffs.

Effective May 6, 2024, customers in Band A feeders will now be charged N206.80 per kilowatt-hour (kWh), down from the previous rate of N225/kWh.

Emeka Ezeh, the spokesperson for EEDC, disclosed this in a statement issued in Enugu on Monday. He emphasized that this adjustment is in line with the Multi-Year Tariff Order (MYTO) 2024.

Despite the reduction in tariff, customers in Band A feeders will continue to receive a minimum of 20 hours of electricity supply daily.

Ezeh clarified that while the tariff for Band A feeders has been revised downwards, there will be no changes to the tariff for customers in Bands B, C, D, and E feeders.

“This is to inform our customers that end-user tariff for our Band A feeders has been reviewed downwards from N225/kWh to N206.80/kWh under MYTO 2024, effective from May 6, 2024.

“The daily minimum 20-hour supply still stands.

“Kindly note that end-user tariff for Bands B, C, D and E feeders remain unchanged.”
