Taipei, Taiwan's new electricity rates, which come with an average hike of 3 percent, will take effect beginning April 1, according to state-run utility Taiwan Power Co. (Taipower).
From Sunday, electricity rates will be raised by an average of NT$2.6253 (US$0.09) per kilowatt-hour (kWh), Taipower said.
Households that use less than 500 kWh and small businesses that use less than 1,500 kWh per month will not have their electricity rates increased, the company said.
This means the existing 10.55 million households that use less than 500 kWh per month or 740,000 small businesses that use less than 1,500 kWh per month will not be affected, it said.
Under the new rates, households that consume between 501-700 kWh of electricity during summertime will see an increase of NT$0.15 per kWh, at a rate of NT$4.80 per kWh. Those that fall between 701-1,000 kWh will see a NT$0.18 raise, at NT$5.66 per kWh. Users who exceed 1,001 kWh will see a NT$0.2 increase, at a rate of NT$6.41 per kWh.
According to Taipower, the new electricity scheme is expected to affect some 1.91 million households, and 170,000 small businesses.
