Electricity tariffs to increase from April 1



Electricity tariffs to increase from April 1

Electricity tariffs will increase by an average of 0.3% or 0.07 cent per kWh for the period from 1 April to 30 June 2014. 

Utilities supplier SP Services says the increase is due to a 1.3% rise in fuel costs, which was partially mitigated by a reduction in non-fuel costs. 

For households, the electricity tariff will increase from 25.65 to 25.73 cents per kWh for 1 Apr to 30 Jun 2014. 

The average monthly electricity bill for families living in four-room HDB flats will increase by $0.26. 

SP Services says it reviews the electricity tariffs quarterly based on guidelines set by the electricity industry regulator Energy Market Authority (EMA). 

Average Increase in Monthly Bill:

HDB 1 room : $0.09
HDB 2 room : $0.13
HDB 3 room : $0.20
HDB 4 room : $0.26
HDB 5 room : $0.31
HDB Executive: $0.37
Apartment : $0.42
Terrace : $0.67
Semi-Detached : $0.86
Bungalow : $1.73
