MYTO is an acronym for Multi-Year Tariff Order. it is an incentive based regulation developed by NERC to:
It provides a framework for settlement of imbalance between PHED and TCN as well as the enforcement of discipline in the discharge of remittance obligations to Nigerian Bulk Electricity Trading Plc. (NBET) and Market Operations(MO).
The tariff was reviewed and took effect on September 1, 2020 after an extensive process of consultation.
Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution, plc. has classified their respective feeders. Feeders mean lines in which PHED uses to distribute power supply to customers. The feeders are divided into the 5 bands which are service reflective as shown below.
The Service Reflective Tariff plan is as shown below;
1. Band A – Customers who receive minimum of 20 hours per day.
2. Band B – Customers who receive minimum of 16 hours per day
3. Band C – Customers who receive minimum of 12 hours per day
4. Band D – Customers who receive minimum of 8 hours per day
5. Band E – Customers who receive minimum of 4 hours per day
*Note: Bands D and E are not affected by this tariff review.
MYTO 2020 is essentially a service based tariff. This means that discos can only charge tariff reflective of the service which is based on actual consumption.
Residential Customers – R1,R2,R3
Non – Demand Customers – Non MD
Commercial Customers – C1,C2,C3
Maximum Demand Customer 1- MD1
Maximum Demand Customer 2 – MD2
Presently, MYTO does not allow for band change. However, it is expected that subsequent reviews may give room for band change.
It is dependent on the reclassification of the location based on improved services.
Band is a function of location. That is, a customer is in a particular band as a result of the location of their property.
R2 customers are categorized under non-maximum demand (non-MD) customer class. R1, R2, and R3 customers are all in this band.
Transmission company of Nigeria (TCN) is responsible for the transmission of electricity which is then distributed by PHED. An increase in availability requires an overhaul of the feeder which is installed according to technical capacity
Under MYTO 2020, Band D and E Customers who receive a maximum of 8 hours and 4 hours supply respectively are not affected.
The tariff became effective on September 1, 2020
The customer is paying more because the approved tariff is service reflective. As at today, given the tariff sculpting, the cost reflective tariff for PHED is N64.82, while the highest service reflective tariff is N55.02
This is bound to happen however we strongly advise that customers practice energy efficiency in order to conserve energy and save money.
PHED Premium Service is designed for customers willing to enjoy more availability. We are currently consulting with customers across bands that are willing to access this service considering the attendant cost in infrastructure as this would be reflected in the tariff.
The same tariff applies to the customers is the same, However based on availability of supply, their consumption and charge may vary.
There is presently no movement in bands. Nevertheless, PHED requires feedback from customers who are interested in having more supply as such will determine the need for additional investment in infrastructure to cater for their demand. This will however attract an upward review of the tariff and band of the affected area.
