Many countries struggle to provide adequate electricity services to the private sector. While the importance of infrastructure for economic growth is widely acknowledge, limited research has been dedicated on how electricity sector outcomes impact firm performance. The paper presents new measures from the Doing Business Getting Electricity (GE) indicator for 190 economies, namely macro data for electricity tariffs and power outages. The objective of the paper is to test the relationship between electricity sector characteristics, as measured by Doing Business, and firm performance. I first show that power outages and electricity tariffs are associated to firm behavior in terms of the demand for energy inputs. I then employ a similar specification than Geginat and Ramalho (2015) using World Bank Enterprise Surveys to find that, in a cross sectional sample of 80 economies, outages are negatively associated with firm productivity. Electricity tariffs are also negatively associated to productivity but only for small and medium enterprises.
