Welcome To NBET.

Nigerian’s deficient power sector supply has been a challenge that the past three presidential administrations have steadfastly sought to address. In 2001, the Federal Government, in a bid to address the deficiency in power sector supply, adopted the National Electric Power Policy for the reform of the sector.

Following suit, the Electric Power Sector Reform Act (EPSRA), was passed into law in March 2005. A key thrust of the sector reform is the transfer of the control and operations of the industry from public sector to private sector.
