The Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company has declared that it had added 34 new Band A feeders to its network aimed at increasing power supply to customers.

This follows the meticulous monitoring and evaluation of power supply capacity by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission.

Ikeja Disco posted via their X handle said “Premised on our demonstrated ability to provide a minimum of 20 hours daily and an evaluation period monitored by the Regulator, we are pleased to announce approval to add 34 additional Band A feeders to our network.”

The location added to Band A falls under the 32KV and 133KV, which includes areas in Ejigbo, Ikorodu, Ilupeju, Magodo, Maryland, and others.

NERC had recently increased electricity tariff by 231 per cent for category A consumers. The new Multi-Year Tariff Order raised electricity rates for about two million customers from N68 per kilowatt to N255 per kilowatt.

The NERC has ordered the 11 distribution companies to publish their list of customers in Band A, which will have access to a minimum supply of 20 hours per day, following the removal of the power subsidy.
