Hiking Power Price: BERC opens public hearing tomorrow
Bangladesh Energy Regulatory Commission (BERC) will hold public hearings in two phases from tomorrow on increasing prices of electricity at bulk and retail levels.
The hearings will be held from September 25 to 28 and October 2 to 4 at the TCB Bhaban in the city's Karwan Bazar, according to a BERC statement.
All companies and agencies from the power sector have already submitted proposals to the BERC and the regulator has formally accepted the proposals.
The state-owned Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB) and Bangladesh Rural Electrification Board have sent a proposal to the BERC to change the rates of power tariff.
The BPDB also sent another proposal to the commission asking to increase the retail price of electricity by Tk 0.72 per unit (kilowatt-hour).
Besides, the Dhaka Power Distribution Company, Dhaka Electric Supply Company, West-Zone Power Distribution Company and North West Zone Power Distribution Company have sent their proposals to the BERC in this regard.
