SINGAPORE — Electricity tariff in Singapore will increase by an average of 1.77 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) before GST, or 8.7 per cent, from April to June, said SP Group on Wednesday (31 March).

This is mainly due to higher cost of fuel for producing electricity by the power generation companies.

For households, the electricity tariff before GST will increase from 20.76 to 22.55 cents per kWh, or 8.6 per cent, for the period. The average monthly electricity bill for families living in HDB four-room flats will increase by $5.62.

SP Group reviews the electricity tariffs every quarter based on guidelines set by the Energy Market Authority.
