Obasanjo farms, others downgraded by IBEDC from ‘Band A’

IBEDC signs MoU with independent power providers to boost power distribution

In a move reflecting the country’s evolving power realities, the Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) has revealed the reclassification of several feeders previously designated as Band A(They get 20 hours or more supply of electricity). These feeders have been downgraded to Bands B, C, D, or E, reflecting a decline in their daily power allocation.

Obasanjo farm loses priority power supply

The most significant downgrade affects the “Farm Feeder” supplying former Band A service to the Obasanjo Farm, which now falls under Band E, indicating minimal to no daily electricity supply.

Widespread downgrades across IBEDC coverage area:

The reclassification impacts a total of 28 feeders across Oyo, Ogun, Kwara, and Osun states, previously categorized as Band A due to their historically longer hours of power supply.

NERC tariff adjustment eliminates band A subsidy:

The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC)’s recent April 2024 supplementary Multi-Year Tariff Order removes subsidy benefits for Band A customers. This aligns feeder classifications with their actual power supply levels, ensuring fairer cost structures.

Band A customers face higher rates:

Previously enjoying a minimum of 20 hours of daily electricity, Band A customers will now face the unsubsidized rate of N225/kWh. Customers on downgraded feeders can expect revised tariffs based on their new band designations.
