NERC is commended over new electricity tariff by Eko Disco

The Eko Electricity Distribution Company on Thursday commended the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission on the new tariff regime. The Corporate Communications Manager, EKDC, Mr. Godwin Idemudia, gave the commendation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos. He was reacting to the removal of fixed charges under the new tariff regime introduced recently by the NERC.
According to him, removal of fixed charges by government is a welcome development which will benefit the customers a great deal. Idemudia said that his company would now redouble its efforts on its metering project. He said that the company had the least charges among the operators going by what NERC had just released. “What it means now is that we are going to pursue vigorously our metering rollout plans to meet the yearnings of customers. “But for those who cannot wait for the rollout plan to get to them, they can key into our Credited Advanced Payment Metering Implementation programme to avoid estimated bills which do not favour the company nor the customers”.
Idemudia said that his company’s recent arrangement with Egbin for supply of 100 mega watts was still in place. He explained, “Customers within Lekki, Ajah, Ibeju and environs will benefit greatly from this special plan. “This is energy that will come directly to us without passing through the national grid. “In this special arrangement, the customers will pay slightly more than regular customers. “The good news is that it would be stable almost at all times.” He said that the company had put in place special fault clearing teams to respond to faults during the Christmas and New Year period for faults to be attended to within a very short time of distress calls.
