ERB says it’s inevitable to increase electricity tariffs

By Ruth Chayinda (ZNBC) The Energy Regulation Board (ERB) says the migration towards cost reflective tariffs in the energy sector is inevitable for ZESCO and the economy.

ERB Board Chairperson Raymond Mpundu who officially opened the ERB public hearing on the ZESCO application to vary electricity tariffs in Lusaka today, said the board targets to decide on ZESCO’s application within this month.

ZWD question: so what is the purpose of public hearings if ERB has already resolved to allow Zesco to increase tariffs? Is it for ERB bosses to receive sitting allowances or what ?
