‘New electricity tariff exploitative’

Spread the love

Some electricity consumers across the country on Thursday said the electricity Distribution Companies (DisCos) were not adhering to the terms of the new tariff regime they were implementing.

The customers, in an interface with the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) on its official Twitter account, described the new tariff being implemented by the DisCos as exploitative.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the DisCos had announced the implementation of the new Service Reflective Tariff Plan (SRT) across their franchise areas from September 1.

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

In their tweets, the customers said the categorisation was shrouded in secrecy while power supply had dropped since the increment began.

They also urged the DisCos to identify specific areas with their bands and send text messages to customers within those areas in order to stop the exploitation.
