Why do industrial consumers pay different tariffs compared to domestic consumers?
- Hits: 1779
Tariffs are determined and approved based on customer classes/categories. Different customer categories are supplied with electricity at different voltages and are, therefore, associated with different energy losses. Besides, domestic customers consume less energy compared to industrial customers. Based on the foregoing, industrial customers are associated with lower costs of service per unit of energy supplied and, therefore, a lower tariff.
