SUMMARY OF ELECTRICITY RATES

Effective 1 June 2001, the Regulated Industries Commission (RIC) replaced the now defunct Public Utilities Commission (PUC) as the regulatory agency responsible for T&TEC as a service provider. Included in their mandate is the approval of new tariffs.

The Regulated Industries Commission (RIC) has granted a tariff adjustment for all customer classes – Residential, Commercial, Industrial and Street Lighting with effect from September 1, 2009.

The rate structure continues to provide for Residential Customers to pay for energy consumed using a three-tiered system. Tiers are defined on the basis of usage of electricity, measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh), over a two-month billing cycle.

RESIDENTIAL (DOMESTIC) RATE “A”
Availability

All domestic and household electricity supplies
for use by one family living in one residence, supplied from one meter.

Character of Service
60 Hertz, Alternating Current, Single Phase, 2 Wires or 3 Wires, 115 or 230
Volts. Three Phase may be made available upon application at the discretion
of the Commission.
Two Monthly Energy Charge (Effective 1st September 2009)

1- 400 kWh at TT $0.26 per kWh
401 – 1,000 kWh at TT $0.32 per kWh
Over 1,000 kWh at TT $0.37 per kWh

Customer Charge
TT $6.00 for two months. This fixed amount is billed, regardless of how much
electricity is used, to cover the costs of your service and meter, and the administrative
costs related to servicing your account.

Minimum Bill
The minimum bill for a 2-month period shall be the 2-monthly customer charge

Interest Charge on Overdue Bills
This charge will be applied after a grace period of 30 days from the billing
date and the rate of interest shall be fixed at 1.5% per month or at any other
amount, as agreed between the customer and T&TEC.

Refundable Service Deposit
As a credit control measure, a refundable service deposit of TT $95.00 per meter
is payable. This is applied to any outstanding balance on closure of the account.

Actual/Estimated Bills
Residential (Rate A) accounts are billed approximately every 60 days on the
basis of alternating actual and estimated readings of the meter. Estimated bills
are based on the daily average consumption of the last four periods/bills of
a given account say, 25 units. This is then applied to the number of days in
the period – say, 64 days giving consumption for the period of 25×64 or 1600
units. This approach to billing, that is, using estimated readings, is widely
applied throughout the electricity industry as a means of controlling costs
while not compromising overall billing accuracy.

STREET LIGHTING
Introduction

The Commission provides this service to private individuals and organizations
as well as to public sector agencies charged with the responsibility of securing
safety on the roadways and the safety of public property. Two rates are offered,
S1, where the Commission bears the full cost of the installation including the
cost of associated fittings and a lower rate, S2, where the customer contributes
the cost of the fittings. In both cases, a non-refundable Capital Contribution
may have to be paid if the provision of the service entails developmental work
such as a line extension, underground cables or special cables. The service
is unmetered and is billed monthly in arrears.

STREET LIGHTING RATE (S1)
Availability

For service including energy and maintenance supplied to light installations
for the purpose of street, highway and safety lighting of thoroughfares, bridges,
parks and other approved locations. The Commission will furnish, install and
