Energy Fiji Limited is proposing an increase in the electricity tariff rates by 17.27 percent.

In addition, the FCCC will undertake a comprehensive review of the electricity tariff rate and want the general public to weigh in on the matter if they choose.

EFL proposes increases between $0.05 to $0.08 per unit across the various categories.

Written submissions on EFL’s proposed tariff increases must reach the FCCC by the 14th of next month.

The FCCC is an independent Fijian statutory authority whose role is to enforce the FCCC Act 2010, promoting competition, fair trading, regulating prices in markets where competition is lessened or limited, and regulating monopolistic market situations including national infrastructure for the benefit of all Fijians.
