Activists demand to know if electricity prices will surge

- +

A group of activists, led by Vichai Kavichai, yesterday demanded to know whether the price of electricity will rise due to gas-field maintenance in Myanmar. 

The group urged the Energy Regulatory Commission to identify officials responsible for potentially rising electricity costs following the gas supply suspension from the Yadana gas field next month.

They submitted a letter to Prated Srichomphu, director of the ERC's Rights Protection Department, asking the commission to find those responsible for possible increases in the fuel adjustment tariff, or FT charge, which will spill over into power bills. They asked Mr Prated to disclose all information regarding the FT calculation.
