MERA maintains fuel prices, hikes gas tariffs


The Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (Mera) has maintained electricity tariff at K104. 46 per kilowatt-hour (kWh).

Mera spokesperson Fitina Khonje disclosed this at a media briefing currently underway in Blantyre.

Mera has also maintained prices for petrol, diesel and paraffin at K899.20 per litre, K898 per litre, K719.60 per litre respectively.

This is despite petrol landed costs increasing by 9.8 percent; hence, qualifying for price adjustments.

The authority has also maintained Jet A fuel price at K721. 25 per litre and K667. 82 per litre at Kamuzu International Airport and Chileka International Airport, respectively.

Mera has, however, hiked the price of liquid petroleum gas by 5.79 percent from K1 952 to K2 065.

The price adjustments are effective this midnight.
