SINGAPORE - Electricity will cost more from tomorrow, as higher fuel prices have resulted in higher power generation costs, said electricity, water and gas supplier SP Services in a statement yesterday.

Tariffs for households will increase by 4.3 per cent for the quarter from April 1 to June 30, which will mean an increase of 1.19 cents per kWh to 28.78 cents per kWh. This will increase the average monthly electricity bill for families living in four-room HDB flats by S$4.18, said SP Services.

Households living in three-room HDB flats will see a S$3.08 increase in their average monthly electricity bill, while families in five-room HDB flats will see a S$4.83 increase.

The average fuel oil price over the last three months - between Jan 1 to March 15 - increased by 7.3 per cent from S$127.07 to S$136.37 per barrel. "This increase in fuel oil prices saw a corresponding increase in the price of natural gas which is used for power generation in Singapore," said SP Services.

The Singapore Power subsidiary said it reviews the electricity tariffs quarterly based on guidelines set by the Energy Market Authority (EMA), the industry regulator. The latest tariffs given have been approved by the EMA.

Electricity costs previously rose by 2.3 per cent for the previous quarter of Jan 1 to March 31.

im wondering what kind of guideline did EMA set.... fuel price drop, our electricity increase as they said we buy at future price... then fuel price drop further, they said we generate electricity using gas not fuel. But when fuel increase, they said increase price cause operating cost increase?? blink.gif blink.gif blink.gif I think nothing is more profitable than generating power in Singapore... any excuses could be use to increase fuel price every quater....

Its really a sad story for us here. No matter how much we try to find ways to save electricity, the suppliers increase their prices. Back to square one.

If you can produce electricity using a generator, all thr big industrial users would have bought one. It is bloody expensive to run a diesel generator.

I feel that basic requirements such as energy and water should be subject to free market economics. How the hell can they increase prices with just one sweeping statement that crude prices have increased?
A small percentage increase in energy price may mean nothing for some of us but it means alot for the low income group dry.gif

money aside, we should try to consume less energy. one way is to use gas fired water heater or use gas to boil water.

Maybe take the hot water from our radiator after we drive home? The hot water can be recycled for shower, etc, don't waste it! biggrin.gif

In fact on the way home, can recycle the heat fron the engine to cook rice? W

In Sinkie-land where we have no natural resources, so the establishment need to creatively juice your $$$:
- Govt invites MNC to open offices here (Inflow of $$$)
- MNC pay FT/SG workers salary ($$$ transfer to workers)
- Govt tax workers, MNC and collect CPF (Mandatory $$$ to govt)
- Workers needs food, electricity, medical services (Workers pay $$$ to TH-linked companies)
- TH-linked companies pay $$$ to MOF

Without true open-market competition (just like Starhub, M1, Singtel's case), we sinkies can only LL and pay-and-pay.. At least, FTs buy a piece of land in India/China/Philippines and shake leg to retire. bigcry.gif
