KEDCO Initiates Ramadan Promo: 10% Off on Electricity Bills

Residents of Jigawa, Katsina, and Kano States are set to enjoy improved electricity supply and a 10% tariff discount during the month of Ramadan, as assured by the Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO).
The power company expressed its commitment to enhancing electricity provision across the states and alleviating customers’ financial burdens during the holy month.
KEDCO introduced a 10% discount promotion to support its customers financially while they fulfill their electricity obligations.
The discount scheme applies to both non-maximum demand (NMD) post-paid and prepaid customers for vending and subsequent billing throughout Ramadan.
Additionally, customers who settle their historical outstanding bills will receive discounts of 15% and 10% for non-maximum demand (NMD) and maximum demand (MD), respectively.
Abubakar Yusuf, the Managing Director/CEO of KEDCO, reaffirmed the company’s commitment to improved power supply during Ramadan. He stated, “We are actively engaging with relevant stakeholders to enhance power allocation to KEDCO franchise.”
Yusuf explained that recent power supply shortages were due to low national power generation caused by gas constraints, resulting in low load allocation to KEDCO for distribution.
“The reason why we have been experiencing a shortage of power supply lately is as a result of low power generation nationwide, occasioned by gas constraint and consequently low load allocation to us for onward distribution to our customers.
“We do acknowledge how important electricity supply is to our customers, especially in this harsh weather condition, coupled with commencement of Ramadan, that is why we are engaging and collaborating with relevant stakeholders to improve load allocation and power supply to our esteemed customers, especially during this sacred period,” the statement read.
However, efforts are underway to address these challenges, including discussions with the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) to secure additional energy supply for the KEDCO franchise area.
Amidst ongoing repairs and negotiations, Yusuf urged community members to protect power installations within their respective areas to prevent vandalism, which hampers the company’s ability to deliver uninterrupted power supply.
