Competent Authority approves decrease in price of diesel

Nuku'alofa, Tonga

ELECTRICITY COMMISSION

ELECTRICITY TARIFF EFFECTIVE FROM 1 OCTOBER 2022

The Competent Authority has approved a decrease in the regulated price of diesel effective 19 September 2022. This has contributed to a decrease of 13.73 seniti per litre from last regulated price of diesel in July 2022.

However, we are on a quarterly review of regulated price of fuel it has increased in the tariff by 3.14 seniti per kWh (2.7%). In fact, the total electricity tariff will increase from the current 116.72 seniti per kWh to 119.86 seniti per kWh.

The new starting tariff of 119.86 seniti/kWh is the new electricity tariff to adopt by Tonga Power Limited and will be reviewed on a quarterly basis with respect to the movement in diesel prices and also on an annual basis according to the movements in inflation.

The overall Power Generation from Renewable Energy (RE) Sources is average from 14% of TPL total monthly power generation to which its impact on their prices is included on this tariff calculation

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
