Ikeja Electric adds 24 new feeders to Band A 

The Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company (IE) has declared that it has added 24 new Band A feeders to its network amid the current power outage in the country caused by the power grid shutdown. 

This is contained in a statement signed by the management of the company and posted on its X (formerly Twitter) account.  

The new feeders that were initially under a different Band category will now pay the newly revised tariff of N206/kWh as Band A feeders.  

According to IE, the additional feeders of Band A to its network are driven by the firm’s capability to maintain at least 20 hours of daily availability during a performance evaluation period overseen by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).  

The company further noted that the approved Band A feeders now stand at 128. 

“Premised on our demonstrated ability to consistently provide a minimum of 20 hours of daily availability during a performance evaluation period monitored by the Regulator, we are pleased to announce that we have obtained approval to add 24 Band A feeders to our network,” the statement reads.
