The breakdown is as followed:

  • A $0.10 charge will be added per kWh consumption, calculated for the first 100 KW, and a charge of $0.27 per kWh consumption above 100 kWh.
  • A $0.21 is added per ampere subscription capacity.
  • All exceptional tariffs are canceled, namely for industrial, agricultural, touristic, and places of worship, where a price of $0.27 per kWh is approved for those categories.
  • A charge of $0.27 is applied for full consumption.
  • A charge of $4.30 is calculated as a qualifying allowance for subscriptions that were previously calculated at 5,000 LL and $8.60 for subscriptions that were previously calculated at 10,000 LL.
  • Additionally, the tariffs are canceled for private stations, where they will be unified at $0.27 for total consumption (without counting $0.10 for the first 100 kWh consumption).
