We Can’t Modify New Electricity Tariff – IBEDC

Date: 2024-04-17

Regional Head of Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company, IBEDC, in Ilorin, Kwara State, Engr Toyin Akinyosoye, says the new electricity billing tariff (225/KWh) for customers in Band A is beyond what any power distribution company, Disco, can modify.

This is coming amid criticism of the new increased tariff despite poor power supply to customers across the country.

Receiving the state Commissioner for Energy, Engr Abdulazeez Kola Abdulganiy, in his office in Ilorin, the IBEDC’s regional head, appealed to customers to accept the new development in good faith.

Regional Head of Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company, IBEDC, in Ilorin, Kwara State, Engr Toyin Akinyosoye, says the new electricity billing tariff (225/KWh) for customers in Band A is beyond what any power distribution company, Disco, can modify.

This is coming amid criticism of the new increased tariff despite poor power supply to customers across the country.

Receiving the state Commissioner for Energy, Engr Abdulazeez Kola Abdulganiy, in his office in Ilorin, the IBEDC’s regional head, appealed to customers to accept the new development in good faith.

Toyin further disclosed that “the new electricity tariff will take effect immediately for customers on prepaid meters, while customers on postpaid meters will take effect in the next billing cycle.

“Allocation of power supply is currently limited due to network issues.

“Many feeders have been downgraded because they have low power supply. I can assure all customers that when power allocation increases, they will be upgraded.”

Earlier, the state commissioner for energy, had again called on the IBEDC to charge customers, and government-owned facilities, including hospitals, reasonable electricity bills.

He said the state government, on its part, had always complemented the IBEDC services by paying the electricity bills of all government’s facilities promptly, constructing feeder lines and providing various communities with transformers and other electrical materials to enhance their access to regular electricity.
