"It's the Tariff, right. In 2015, you could get 126units for 1,000NGN (after paying the fixed charges o). But presently, with 1,000NGN, you get only 17.6units. Now multiply it by 50 to get the number of units vended for you. There is a proposed tariff increment. I can't say if it would kick of Aug or September 2021. Best thing is to use sunlight abi na solar."
