This study presents the analysis of energy revenue and electrical power losses in distribution network, aimed to determine the energy losses on power distribution system. The 11kV power transmission line at Ujokuen community feeding to Benson Idahosa University was investigated. The following data were obtained as follow: energy delivered, energy billing, total cash amount, billed collected and correspond percentage. From the research work various technical power losses associated with power distribution network were determined and their effect on energy delivered and energy billing and corresponding difference under the area of investigation. It was observed that energy delivered is not constant or linear for the year 2013. The comparison of energy delivered and energy billed for various years were determined. It was observed that there is decreased in energy delivered and energy billed from 2013 to 2015 and the system witnessed a slightly increase of energy delivered and energy billed from 2016 to 2018. The energy level differentials are due to copper losses, energy theft and core loss.
