    Uniform electricity rate to be charged for domestic and non-domestic users

    Thailandís Office of the Energy Regulatory Commission (OERC) has decided to impose a uniform electricity rate of 4.77 baht/unit for both household and non-household customers from May through August.


    OERC Secretary-General Komkrit Tantravanich said that, at its meeting on Wednesday, the commission considered three options for electricity rates for the period and the feedback from the public on the options, as well as the recommendation from the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) about a suitable electricity rate.


    The three options were 6.72 baht/unit rate if the Fuel Tariff (FT) is 293.60 satang/unit, 4.84 baht/unit if the FT is 105.25 satang/unit and 4.77 baht/unit if the FT is 98.27 satang/unit.


    Komkrit said that the commission unanimously settled upon 4.77 baht/unit for both household and non-household use, which is in line with EGATís recommendation.


    Compared to the current electricity charges for household and non-household users, at 4.72 baht/unit and 5.33 baht/unit respectively, the new rate means that household users will pay five satang more for each unit of electricity they use, while non-household users will pay 56 satang/unit less, said Komkrit.

    Sure let the common folk pay to subsidise the monied folks. Like taxes, should be the other way around but seldom is.
