Tonga Power announces cheaper electricity charge

Press Release

Tonga Power is pleased to announce a step reduction in tariff due to the commissioning of the Vava’u Solar Farm. The impact of the solar facility is a reduction in Tonga Power Limited’s tariff by 0.89 seniti per kWh.

In addition the landed cost of diesel on Tonga for November 2013 has correspondingly decreased. This translates to 0.74 seniti per kWh as a result of the international crude oil prices declining slightly.

The new electricity tariff for the Kingdom of Tonga will decrease a total of 1.63 seniti per kWh from the current 94.45 seniti to 92.82 seniti per kWh. Tonga Power’s Board of Director’s would like to make these benefits available to all our customers as from 1 December 2013 for all four island networks.

Details of the new tariff rate effective from 1 December 2013 is as follows:
