Botswana Power Corporation (BPC) has increased electricity tariffs, effective April this year.

According to a statement released by BPC, tariffs for domestic customers consuming up to 200-kiloWatt per hour (kWh) have been increased by 7.5 percent while the domestic category customers consuming more than 200kWh per month were increased by 10 percent.

“A stepped two-block tariff structure for domestic and small businesses category customers has been maintained to lessen the impact of the tariff adjustment on low-usage households and small scale businesses as well as an incentive to use electricity efficiently,” reads the statement.
