ELECTRICITY tariff for Singapore households will go up again in the
coming quarter, due to the fuel oil price hike over the last three
months.

The new rate for the April to June quarter will increase to 23.56
cents per kWh, about 3 per cent higher than the current quarter, said
SP Services in a statement on Tuesday. This will work out to an
average increase of $2.47 in the monthly electricity bill for families
in four-room HDB flats.

SP Services, a member of the Singapore Power Group, said that the rise
- the fourth quarterly in a row since last July - is largely due to an
increase in fuel oil price over the past three months, from $99.38 to
$102.95 per barrel.
