Time of Use (TOU) tariffs are the most cost effective and the energy charges are differentiated by the time of day when electricity is consumed. These times differ subject to;

  • a particular weekday or weekend day and the specific time of the day.
  • The supply voltage and the system voltage at which the customer is supplied from.

The TOU tariffs offer significant opportunities for customers to save on their electricity bills by moving load from expensive times to cheaper times of the day or week.  

T1

For any large customer supplied at Medium Voltage (MV) but directly from High Voltage (HV) Substations.

T2

For any large customer supplied at Medium Voltage (MV)

T3

For any large customer supplied at Low Voltage (LM)

T4

For small holder irrigation consuming not more than 100kVA

Facility Charges

Facility charges, payable whether any electricity is used or not, are being increased to more accurately reflect the fixed customer specific costs associated with the various supplies.

Energy Charges

Energy Charges are for all electricity consumption during billing month which shall be as near to the calendar month as convenient to EEC.

Maximum Demand Charges

Maximum Demand shall be the power recorded over any thirty minutes period by a kVA demand indicator.

Access Charge

Access Charge is based on the highest of the previous 12 month maximum demand.

Tariff Conversions

Tariff conversion is when a customer converts to a more appropriate tariff. Upon conversation, an application would need to be completed with circumstances meeting EEC’s requirements for conversation.

By-pass

A means of providing an alternative and illegal path to a circuit in order to circumvent the consumption of electricity to either reduce the consumption amount or billed amount.

Connection Fee

Connection fees apply to residential utility accounts that are new or transferring or if reconnection after disconnection for non-payment. These fees reflect the cost of performing these services for the customer.

Security Deposits

A monetary deposit levied by EEC as security to the company to pay towards outstanding debt in the event the customer fails to pay their debt. Once an account is terminated and the security deposit is applied on the outstanding debt, any credit balance on the accounts refunded to the customer. Likewise, any debt should be paid by the customer.
