The Energy Regulatory Commission has decided to cut the FT surcharge for January-April period by four satang per unit to 37.29 satang/unit in order to reduce the burden on consumers during New Year’s festival.
Mr Veeraphol Chirapraditkul, a member of the ERC, said on Wednesday that the FT cut would bring the electricity charge for all types of users to an average of 3.3827 baht per unit (excluding VAT).
He added that the commission would give all the details about the FT adjustment in its website and, at the same time, will gauge opinions from all consumers until January 5 after which the opinions will be considered.
He, however, predicted that FT charge for the May-Ausgust would increase in line with expected adjustment in oil and gas prices in relation to increased demand.
