Electricity bill for 4-room HDB flats to increase by average of $6.79

SINGAPORE - Electricity tariffs will increase by an average of 9.2 per cent or 1.59 cents per kWh for the period of July 1 to September 30, SP Services said in a press statement on Thursday (June 30).

For households, the electricity tariff will increase from 17.68 to 19.27 cents per kWh for Jul 1 to Sep 30.

The average monthly electricity bill for families living in four-room HDB flats will increase by $6.79

The increase is largely due to the cost of natural gas for electricity generation, which rose by 26.0 per cent compared to second quarter 2016, SP Services said.
