NERC Unveils New Tariff Rules to Regulate Mini-grid Operations in Nigeria

by Vincent Godstime
The federal government, through the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), has established regulations outlining tariff allowances for mini-grid operations within the country. The recently introduced directives have additionally defined permissible technical losses for mini-grid operators at 4%, according to the existing rules.
In its guidelines, the regulatory body further stipulated that mini-grids should possess a generation capacity ranging from 0kW to 1MW per site. This development follows NERC’s issuing of permits to 10 mini-grid developers with a distribution capacity surpassing 100 kilowatts and a generation capacity of up to one megawatt.
