The Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (Mera) has announced an increase in electricity tariff by 10.6 percent effective tomorrow 30th March 2021.

Announcing the development at a media briefing in Lilongwe this afternoon, Mera consumer affairs and public relations manager Fitina Khonje said the upward increase of electricity is due to developments in the economy which include the Kwacha depreciation by 5.92 percent.

The increase by 10.62 percent means electricity consumers will now be paying K104.46 per kilowatt per hour (Kwh) from the current K0.94.43/Kwh.

The last time the electricity tariff was increased was in 2018 by 31.8 percent and was planned to be implemented in tranches from 2018 to 2022.
