Electricity prices up 0.5 per cent from Tuesday

SINGAPORE - Electricity tariffs were increased by an average of 0.5 per cent from Tuesday for the next three months. This means that families living in four-room flats will have to fork out an average of 55 cents more per month.

This increase is due to rising fuel costs, said SP Services on Monday.

Meanwhile, about 800,000 Singaporean Housing Board households will receive $45 million worth of GST Voucher - Utilities-Save (U-Save) rebates this month.

The GST Voucher-U-Save, introduced in Budget 2012, directly offsets utilities expenses of households and will be paid out four times a year.
