    PURC not considering tariff hike – Energy Ministry

    81173914.295

    The Energy Ministry has described as untrue claims by the Minority in Parliament that the Ministry and for that matter government has not made any proposal to the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC) for a reduction in the electricity tariffs, contrary to what was stated in the 2018 budget.

    The Energy Ministry also says the Minority claims that the PURC is contemplating a major increase in electricity tariffs and the fact that the Ministry is meddling in the affairs of the PURC are all false.

    In a statement, the Energy Ministry said it submitted a proposal to the PURC in November 2017 for a reduction in electricity tariffs.

    “The PURC has not communicated its intention to increase tariff. A major review of tariffs does not necessarily mean an increase as misunderstood by the Minority,” the statement said.

    The Energy Ministry also noted that it considers the charge of meddling in the affairs of PURC as shocking and urged the Minority to be diligent in their search for information.

    Below is the full statement:
