After months of deliberation, the Public Utilities Commission announced today the approved rate of increase that Belizeans will be paying on their light bill.

 

 

At a press conference held at the Best Western Belize Biltmore Plaza this morning, PUC Chairman John Avery, and Director of Energy Ambrose Tillett explained that the electricity rate would go up from 36.99 cents per Kilowatt Hour to 39.3 cents, an increase of 6.24 percent.

The increase becomes effective on July 1 and will be reflected in the electricity bills issued at the end of July for those on that billing cycle. Tillett explained that the rate will be reviewed next year between April and June for further adjustment.

“Electricity generation is particularly volatile so for BEL it is understood that we will review the rates every year,” Tillett said.
