Annual Electricity Tariffs Review: 2017 / 2018

  • As Namibia continue to import most of its bulk supply of electricity from neighboring countries, so as the trend of electricity tariffs increase. We thus urge all consumers to use electricity sparingly.
  • In accordance with Section 27, Sub Section (2) of the Electricity Act 4 of 2007, the Electricity Control Board (ECB) as the Regulator of the electricity pricing in Namibia, has approved on overage electricity tariff increase of 11.1 % to NORED. Our tariffs ore below the National Bulk Supplier, (Nam Power’s) average electricity tariff increase at 16.71 % .
