The electricity tariff for households will increase by an average of 3.8 per cent from Jul. 1 to Sep. 30.
This amounts to an increase of 0.84 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh), compared with the previous quarter, according to SP Group.
For households, the electricity tariff, before GST, will increase from 22.55 to 23.38 cents per kWh.
This means the average monthly electricity bill for families living in HDB four-room flats will increase by S$3.04, before GST.
According to SP Group, the increase is due to the higher cost of fuel for producing electricity by the power generation companies.
