FG to Cancel Fixed Electricity Charge When Electricity Generation Increases– BPE 

The Director-General, Bureau of Public Enterprises, Benjamin Dikki, has said that the fixed charge currently being paid by electricity consumers in the country will be dispensed with as soon as power generation increases to an economically sustainable level.
Dikki said this during a live/phone-in radio programme, Radio Link on Radio Nigeria, in Abuja. According to him, the fixed charge is a temporary measure. The BPE boss said the country had an installed power generation capacity of 6,000 megawatts but was generating only about 3,000MW to 4,000MW. Dikki, in a statement made available by the BPE on Wednesday, said revenues from the 3,000MW were not sufficient to support the power infrastructure.
