Electricity tariff in Ghana has been increased by 11.17% effective July 1, 2019, the regulator announced Friday.
The Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC) said the decision was taken after careful consideration of proposals by the various stakeholders in the power sector.
“The key objective of the tariff review was to sustain the financial viability of utility service providers as well as ensuring delivery of quality service to consumers,” a statement said.
“This 2019-2020 Major Tariff Review Decision is the outcome of prudent cost review and effective monitoring undertaken by the Commission,” it added.
The Commission also hinted there is a possibility the Ghana Water Company Limited will also review its tariff since a proposal from the water treatment company is currently before it.
