EKSERB Urges Residents to Report Electricity Billing Concerns as BEDC Reverses Band A Electricity Tariff Charge in Ekiti Community

Ekiti State Electricity Regulatory Bureau (EKSERB) has urged electricity consumers in the State to be vigilant as they monitor their electricity bills and should also try as much as possible to make the best use of what it called “an otherwise inadequate electricity supply” to the State from the National Grid.

The Executive Secretary of EKSERB
Engr. Dare David who gave the advice in Ado-Ekiti was reacting to the reversal of a very high tariff similar to ” Band A Tariff ” charged Erinmope Ekiti Community by the BEDC following a complaint from the community.

According to the Executive Secretary,
” In a swift response to a complaint lodged by the Erinmope community on the 8th of April, 2024 ,the BEDC Management in Ekiti State reversed the Band A-like N241.84/kwh tariff charged the community a few days ago instead of the N77.60/ kwh charged in March 2024. This was after the Community had vended N100,000 each time and noticed 875.1 units (kilowatt-hours) of electricity difference”

He disclosed that following the complaint about the development by the Erinmope Community, BEDC acknowledged the error immediately and has consequently refunded the community with a token of appropriate amount to be used to vend immediately to make up the difference.

While stressing the commitment of the Ekiti State Government to support plans to increase generation, transmission and distribution in all parts of the state, the EKSERB Boss stated that the State Government would ensure that all citizens are treated fairly while concerted efforts would continue to be made to guard electricity assets jealously.

He urged consumers and communities in the State to report their grievances and observations with regards to electricity billings to the appropriate authorities following laid down guidelines

    It’s good fir EKSEB to ask that consumers report billing difficulties. Problem is, you never hear of any resolution of such matter. Furthermore, why are they not concerned about the apparent lack of ability to maintain/repair transmission lines damaged by storms, flood etc. This is more than shameful!

    The worst light supply have ever see in the history of Ekiti State and Nigeria as whole is the present regime of president Tinubu and BAO, have suffered lost on my frozen business as a Nigerian youth as a result of bad supply of electricity and we paid for the money Every month. The state government should look into this matter before it lead to another thing. Thanks.

    We at Aba Ebira had been coping with epileptic supply for the past 2 months.
    The supplies comes, stay for 5 to 10 minutes, Then off for almost 5 hrs atimes before coming back.
    Most of the time also, power comes in the night for an hour or two, and goes off before 5 am.
    This may be a trick to say people enjoy power for hours.
    We need to be supplied meters urgently as we are billed arbitrarily under estimated bills.
