Connect Saint Helena is proposing revised tariffs commencing 1st April 2015. Whilst there has been good progress in reducing operating costs, particularly fuel, we still require a sizeable subsidy from SHG to remain solvent putting pressure on Connect to increase charges to the consumer. Many of the occasional charges were revised radically last year and there is no plan to increase these at the present time. We have also reviewed the standing charges for off island customers and propose reducing these charges in line with on island customers. (Click here to view the full 2015 Proposed Electricity and Water Tariff Schedule).
From the 1st April 2015 we propose charging interest at a rate of 0.75% per month (or part of) for overdue balances.
Any comments you might have regarding the proposed tariffs can be forwarded to:
The Utilities Regulatory Authority, The Castle, Jamestown marked for the attention of Yvonne Williams or by email to: email@example.com
All comments must be received by noon on Friday 6th March 2015.
Connect Saint Helena Ltd would like to advise the public that due to the recent heavy rains, we’re able to relax the water restriction and thus lift the hosepipe ban, until further notice.
However consumers are advised to please use water resources conservatively.
