Ethiopian Energy^Power Business Portal

The Ethiopian Electric Utility increased/updated the Electricity/energy tariff applicable since the beginning of December 2018. The Electricity/energy tariff is one of the key factors that determine the investment decision of private players in the power sector of countries. After such a long delay, the utility has finally made a decision and increased the tariff as indicated in the tables below.

Apart from the increase of the rate, there is also a clear distinction between the old and the new tariff calculations in the residential category. Historically, the tariff used to be non-flat or an increasing rate. The new tariff is set in a block or flat range and will have major cost implication for the consumers. In the new tariff of the residential category, the energy in KWH is multiplied with the tariff block where the monthly energy figure rests.

The following table provides the basic information for self reference. If you are interested for further analysis, you may follow this website or contact us . Further analysis will be provided in due course.

 

Note: 

1. The tariff rate is set in the local currency(ETB)

2. The tariff rate is already set to evolve every year until Dec 2021
