Dominican Republic raises light bill

Santo Domingo.- Starting tomorrow, the Government will once again adjust the electricity rate. It will be 9% for residential customers who consume up to 300 kWh and 7.6% for small businesses, which together represent around 80% of users regulated by electricity distribution companies.

The measure is part of the gradual and quarterly dismantling of the electricity subsidy with a view to 2026.
In monetary terms, for residential customers who consume between 0 and 300 kilowatt hours, the adjustment means an increase, on average, of 115.03 pesos compared to the rate established in the quarter that ends today, reported the Superintendence of Electricity.

This is obscene. The consumers should be getting discounts as reparation for the blackouts they endure.
