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.

he 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.

Attention Residential Customers - Re your bill statement !

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 $0.26 TT cents per kWh
401 - 1,000 kWh at $0.32 TT cents per kWh
over 1,000 kWh at $0.37 TT cents per kWh


Customer Charge

$6.00 TT 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 $95.00 TT 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 a consumption for the period of 25x64 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.
