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).

HDB 1 room : $0.09
HDB 2 room : $0.13
HDB 3 room : $0.20
