It has come to Commission’s attention that with the rolling power cuts started in February 2022, and frequent fuel price revisions that took place since then have caused the following two key parameters considered in tariff approvals of exempted parties to change significantly.
In consideration of these changes, the commission have approved a fuel surcharge component for electricity tariffs of all exempted parties to be calculated and charged from tenants as detailed in the Annex.
All parties exempted from the requirement to obtain Distribution licensee are hereby allowed to charge along with their electricity selling tariff, a fuel surcharge component calculated as detailed in the annex 1 from their tenants for the time period from 1st of February 2022 to 31st of December 2022.
The exempted parties are also required to submit the details of actual cost overrun of their establishment due to rolling power cuts for review of the commission, by 30th November 2022, with all the supporting documents for our review and concurrence.
