Electricity consumers have reason to celebrate after the government handed them an early Christmas present.

Government today allayed fears from sections of the public that there will be an increase in the electricity tariffs next year.

State Minister for Energy, Simon D’Ujanga announced to the media that end user retail tariffs stay unchanged as domestic consumers will continue to pay 385 shillings; 356 shillings for commercial consumers; 333 shillings for medium industrial consumers while large industrial consumers will pay 184 shillings per kilo watt.

D’Ujanga attributes the non changes to increased subsidy allocations to the electricity sub sector, as well as a steady loss reduction over the last five years.

The minister adds that in a bid to curb losses next year, the Electricity Regulatory Authority has set a target on losses of 27.2% and a target of collection efficiency of 95.6% for UMEME.

The Acting Chief Executive Officer of Electricity Regulatory Authority, Benon Mutambi also revealed that distribution losses improved from 35% in 2009 to 30% in 2010, a trend which the authority believes will improve over the next few years.
