EEDC Announces Reduction Of Tariff For Customers In S’East

Listen to article

The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) has announced an immediate reduction of electricity tariff for their customers in the Band A feeders throughout the South-East.

The reduction came following the directive of the National Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), that all the 11 Discos should now charge N206.80/kWh and no longer N225/Kwh for customers in Band A feeders.

This is contained in a statement issued by EEDC’s Spokesperson, Mr Emeka Ezeh, in Enugu on Wednesday.

It said: “This is to inform our customers that end-user tariff for our Band A feeders have 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.”

Recall that the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) has been given an ultimatum by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to improve its electricity supply in the Southeast or face the consequences.

In a statement issued by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful which was sent to The Eastern Updates on Sunday, IPOB accused EEDC of “defrauding her consumers with exorbitant electricity bills without supplying the power.

“The company has refused to give her consumers prepaid electricity meters but keeps giving illegal estimated bills,” the statement said.

“In many communities in the Southeast, EEDC gives community bills running in hundreds of thousands of naira. Whether the light was provided or not, any village that didn’t pay the illegal estimated bills will have the irregular light supply disconnected.”

IPOB also alleged that EEDC had dismantled some community transformers for repairs and maintenance but failed to return them for years, leaving the communities in darkness.
