Reforms relative to getting electricity

Reduction of the time needed to process a request for connection

Reforms implemented to ease connection to the grid revolve around three major axes: reducing the cost of connection works, reducing the time required to process information and requests through digitalization, and improving power supply.

 

Reduction of 30%, then 50% of the cost to get connected to the medium-tension grid

Costs for supply and installation, excluding VAT, and prepaid fees for getting connected to the medium-tension grid (electric and metering equipment) have been reduced to 30% in 2018, then 50% the following year.

Also, payments can be made in installments, over six months.

 

Improved power supply

Access to electricity in Togo was improved by:

  • Installing and commissioning a third 35-MVA transformer at the CEB’s source station (Port of Lomé), which subsequently increased capacity from 60 MVA to 95 MVA.
  • Warning of scheduled cuts or other urgent interruptions on the grid;
  • Rehabilitating the underground medium-tension network, and reinforcing the maintenance and repair system.

These various measures helped reduce outage duration to 89 hours throughout the 8,700-hour year. This corresponds to a performance of 99% in terms of grid quality.

 

Dematerialization and centralization of information, and of the procedures of claims and payments

This was done by putting online - on the websites of the utility, CEET, and the regulator, ARSE - information related to the costs and processes associated with connection to the grid, complaints, payment modes, etc.

Also, a call center (CIS) was created to make sure complaints are processed more rapidly.
