The Electricity Control Board (ECB) is a statutory regulatory authority established in 2000 under the Electricity Act 2 of 2000; which has subsequently been repealed by the Electricity Act, 4 of 2007.
Nampower Tariff Adjustment for the Financial Period 2015/2016
NamPower made an application to the ECB in terms of section 27 of the Electricity Act, (Act 4 of 2007). In its application, NamPower requested for an effective bulk tariff increase of 13.20%, an increase from N$ 1.17 to N$ 1.32 per kWh (inclusive of generation and transmission) for the financial period 2015/2016, to meet its service delivery costs and for the tariff to remain cost reflective.
Based on the facts, regulatory rules and policies, the ECB analysed and reviewed the NamPower tariff application, considered feedback from other stakeholders and decided that a 9.53% tariff increase would suffice for NamPower to cover its allowed operating costs, keep the lights on and fulfil its financial obligations. This means an effective bulk tariff increase from N$ 1.17 to N$ 1.28 per kWh.
The approved tariff adjustment is effective 01 July 2015.
