Commission eyes new electricity tariffs for next year
The Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) announced that though the electricity tariff structure in Thailand will remain the same for the next five years, it will also offer benefits to consumers who produce their own power.
“The new electricity tariff structure will look into individuals who produce and consume power they generate [Prosumer] and independent power suppliers [IPS], as we are seeing more solar panels being registered every week,” said ERC secretary-general Khomkrit Tantrawanich.
The commission is expected to come up with clear guidelines this year and the new tariff will go into effect in 2022.
The new structure will support changes in the power-generation industry in line with national strategy and future economic, social, environmental and technological changes, he said.
