The DisCos had been directed by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) to submit their Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) which would be a key input for major review of electricity tariff – the Multi Year Tariff Order (MYTO) 2020 expected to take off by January.

The NERC also revealed the actual cost-reflective tariff for each of the 11 power distribution companies operating in Nigeria.

The government disclosed the cost-reflective tariff of each of the Discos in separate documents for each particular distributor in a regulatory instrument cited as ‘ The 2016 -2018 Minor Review of Multi- Year Tariff Order 2015 and Minimum Remittance Order for the Year 2019 ’.
