The Electric Power Sector Reform Act 2005 grants the Commission the power to establish the tariff which all classes of customers should pay for electricity services. Section 76 permits the Commission to establish one or more methodologies to regulate tariffs for generation and trading, distribution, transmission and systems operation services. It further provides in Subsection 2(a)(b)(c) that such methodology will allow “a licensee that operates efficiently to recover the full costs of the business activities, including a reasonable return on the capital invested in the business, (b) provide incentives for the continued improvement of the technical and economic efficiency with which the services are provided; (c) give consumers economically efficient signals regarding the costs that their consumption imposes on the licensee’s business...”
Since 2008, the Commission has established a methodology for tariff through stakeholder consultation. Whenever the Commission wants to review the tariffs it had followed the procedure stipulated in the methodology. This includes publishing the proposed changes on the Commission’s website and newspapers, conducting public hearing across the geopolitical zones and consulting with key public institutions with mandate to manage macroeconomic fundamentals of the economy.
The review of the MYTO 2.1 is under way and the Commission has gained better grasp of its regulatory responsibility and a better framework of tariff making underlined by more transparency, accountability and participation of stakeholders.
In line with its regulations, especially the MYTO Methodology; and pursuant to its commitment to transparency, accountability and public participation, the Commission hereby publishes the various tariff submissions by respective Discos.
Customers and other publics are requested to download the tariff submissions of the DisCos they are interested in, review and submit appropriate comments on or before October 12, 2015.
Below are the submissions by the respective DisCos:
