PHCN Tariff 2012: For All Classes of Electricity Consumers In Nigeria (Part 1)

On June 1, 2012 the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) introduced a new electricity tariff where consumers are expected to pay more than what they use to pay before.
Since the introduction of the new electricity tariff most consumers in Nigeria are yet to fully know what the new PHCN billing system entails.

PHCN Prepaid meters

Apart from a general increase of about 50% rate payable by all classes of electricity consumers in the country, PHCN also includes a new monthly fixed charge which cuts across all classes of PHCN electricity customers.
The new PHCN electricity tariff is not a uniform billing system, the rate consumers pay for electricity in Nigeria depends on where they reside in the country.

Also, the newly introduced tariff is only valid for 2012; therefore, every New Year Power Holding Company of Nigeria is expected to review and introduce another electricity tariff plan for its consumers.
