Here Is How Much You Pay As Electricity Bill In Your State As A Nigerian


The Federal Government in January 2016, introduced new electricity tariffs raising rates by a whopping 40%. The government explained that this was necessary to ensure investments into the sector is sustained as no one will put down money for tariffs that are not cost-reflective (enough to cover your cost and help them make some profit).

With the 40% tariff increase, household light bills went up triggering a rise in inflation rate throughout 2016. Even though most reports indicate tariffs rose by 40%, electricity tariff is not the same across board.

You actually get to pay higher in some states compared to others. The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, NERC, explained that the reason for the disparate tariff was due to the rate of losses associated with different regions in the country. Regions with the high losses typically incur higher tariffs.


To put things into better perspective, we will assume a regular household that consumes 1000 units of electricity per month. This is a household that has 3 AC’s, a deep freezer and Fridge, LCD or LED TV’s, Electric Cooker and a washing machine.
