The Proposal of Ceylon Electricity for revision of Tariff for Domestic and Religious and Non Domestic Consumers-2013

Ceylon Electricity Board has requested the Commission in writing to revise end user tariffs for 2013. CEB has submitted it’s comprehensive proposal including related cost.

 

The Salient features of the tariff proposal are as follows:

  • The existing incremental tariffs block system used in domestic and religious customer categories will convert to a ‘Progressive Blocks’ system, where a monthly ( 30 day ) consumption falls within a certain range (block), the relevant tariffs (Unit Rate) for that range will be applicable for the entire monthly consumption.
  • Following example illustrates a calculation:
  • Assumption: 40 units of consumption for a 30 day period.

 

ItemComposition of monthly bill

Existing Tariff (LKR)

Proposed Tariff (LKR)

Unit Charge

First 30 unit X Rs. 3.00 = 90.00
Next 10 unit X Rs. 4.70 = 47.00
Total unit charge = Rs. 137.00

= 40 X 6.00 = Rs. 240.00

Fuel Adjustment Charge (35%)

= 137*35% = Rs. 47.95 = 240*35% = R. 84.00

Fixed Charge

= Rs. 60.00 Rs. 60.00

Total Bill

= Rs. 137.00 + Rs. 47.95+ Rs. 60.00 = Rs. 244.95 = Rs. 240.00 + Rs. 84.00 + Rs. 60.00= Rs. 384.00
