Electricity costs increased

Energy Minister Christopher Yaluma has disclosed that government through the Energy Regulation Board (ERB) has approved the proposal by ZESCO to increase electricity tariffs.

Early this year, ZESCO proposed to have electricity tariffs increased by an average of 26% in order to enable the power utility firm to meet various operational costs, high inflation and increased demand for electricity in the country.

Speaking in an interview with QFM news, Yaluma however claimed  that the approved electricity tariffs are below the 26% that ZESCO proposed.

Yaluma, who could not disclose the exact percentage of the electricity tariffs that have been approved, said that the ERB will soon announce the approved increased ZESCO electricity tariffs.
