Electricity tariffs may increase in July – NERC

The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) has said that another tariff review for Nigeria’s 11 power distribution companies would take place in July.

NERC confirmed this on Monday, in its notice of Minor and Extraordinary Review of Tariffs for Electricity Transmission and Distribution Companies.

This development that might lead to a rise in the tariffs payable by electricity users.

The commission explained that the extraordinary tariff review was as a result of changes in inflation, foreign exchange, gas prices, available generation capacity and capital expenditure.

The commission, however, stated that extraordinary tariff reviews where done in instances where industry parameters had changed from those used in the operating tariffs to such an extent that a review was urgently required to maintain the viability of the industry.
