Govt's Lifeline Tariff subsidy on electricity continues for July

Nuku'alofa, Tonga

Government Lifeline Contribution to Tarriff at Tonga Power Ltd.
Effective from 1 July 2021

A significant increase in the regulated price of diesel has been approved by the Competent Authority effective 18 June 2021. This has contributed to an increase of 26.58 seniti per litre as from January 2021 to June 2021.

As a result, this has increased the cost of fuel required for power generation by 7.67 seniti per kWh (10.5%) with the result that the total electricity tariff will increase from the current 73.04 seniti per kWh to 80.71 seniti per kWh.

The Government continued to subsidize the 'Lifeline Tariff Discount Scheme'. The discounted tariff of 7.67 seniti/kWh is to apply to the regulated tariff of 80.71 seniti/kWh, only to the power customers consumed between 0-100 kWh/month, to maintain the electricity tariff at 73.04 seniti/kWh.

The Electricity Commission has approved the 'Lifeline Tariff Discount Scheme' effective for the power consumption from 1 July 2021.

The revised tariff rates approved by the Electricity Commission are as follows:

NOTE: The Electricity Tariff is regulated by the Electricity Act and administered by the Electricity Commission. A process set down in the Concession Agreement between Tonga Power Limited and the Electricity Commission determines the tariff adjustment. The Competent Authority is the Tongan Government Agency whom sets the landed price of diesel which Tonga Power Limited uses for their power generation.

Thank you,

Electricity Commission
Kingdom of Tonga
