Public Notice from Tonga Power Limited.

Tonga Power Ltd is pleased to announce a reduction in the electricity tariff, effective 1 December 2014.

With international crude oil prices fluctuating over the last 9 months it was imperative on us to have been able to hold the power tariff prices over this long period of time. However, with the slight decrease of diesel fuel from this month, we are able to reduce the electricity tariff. The net movement as approved by the Regulator has resulted in a decrease of the power tariff from $0.9173/kWh to $0.9057/kWh.

Please note, the new tariff price without the Solar and Wind farm would have been $0.9657/kWh but the combined Solar Farm at Tongatapu 1.4MW and Vava’u 450KW plus the Nakolo Wind 11kW (combined accounting for 6% of the total monthly diesel consumption) had reduced the power tariff by $0.06/kWh from $0.9657/kWh to $0.9057/kWh as stated above.

The new tariff set out in the table above applies to all electricity consumed as from 1st December 2014.

Thank you,
Tonga Power Ltd. 10 November 2014.
