At the end of 2018, an Association of Nigeria Electricity Distributors (ANED) report revealed that Discos collected N422.5bn in 2018, up from N344.7bn in 2017, with collection efficiency rising to 65% from 60% while the aggregate technical, commercial and collection losses dropped to 49% from 54%.
More recently, ANED stated that “the aggregate ATC&C loss KPI (moving average) keeps consistently improving and it is now at 43.3%, although, and again IE has achieved a new record of 20.6% and, in a commendable way, Kano has reduced almost 20 points of ATC&C losses in just two years.”
If revenue collection from electricity sales start to fall in light of the ongoing pandemic and proposed tariff increases, the impact will be devastating to Discos, and any ground gained will be lost.
