DISCLAIMER: FAKE NEWS PUBLICATION

The Public Utilities Regulatory Commission has noted with concern a recent misleading social media publication that, electricity bills have gone up by 17.5%.
 
The Commission reiterates that as the sole institution mandated by law to set and review electricity tariffs, it has not increased tariffs as claimed by this misleading post. The Commission has also not received any communication from the Ministry of Finance which is in charge of levies and taxes about any introduction of taxes on residential electricity consumers. 
 
PURC, therefore, wishes to inform its key stakeholders and the general public to disregard such false publication and treat it as fake. We entreat the public to visit our website to obtain relevant and accurate information on utility tariffs.
