Electricity tariff plans for 2022 released for review

The Electricity Authority of Cambodia (EAC) on September 10 released electricity tariff plans for 2022 of licensees connected to the national grid, for government ministries and institutions, as well as the licensees to review and comment on before October 10.

The proposed rates are as follows – $0.1138 per kWh for connection at medium-voltage (MV) from grid substations, $0.1290 for those metering at MV, $0.13416 for consumer transformers metering at low-voltage (LV) levels, and $0.14216 for supplier transformers metering at LV.

The rates are due to be effective from January 1, and the first bills issued on January 20, the EAC said, stressing that it strives to provide better electricity services at reasonable price for homes and enterprises.

A representative of Pursat-based Nareth Electricity Development Co Ltd, told The Post that her firm consults with the EAC each year to help set the electricity tariff regime.

But as a general rule “I do not object to the electricity pricing of the EAC, whatever it determines, we follow”, she said.

The EAC is responsible for issuing licences for electricity-related operations, as well as approving and implementing operating standards for licensees to ensure the quality of supply and service to consumers.

The agency issued a total of 463 distribution licences nationwide in 2020. By the end of 2020, there were 13,798 villages with access to electricity, equivalent to 97.39 per cent, and 370 villages without, or 2.61 per cent.
