He highlighted that the category concerned with adjusting the tariff represents only 15 percent of the electricity and gas company’s customers, i.e. within the range of 650,000 customers in low voltage, according to Stag statistics.

With regard to natural gas, he explained that the increase will include 33 percent of low-pressure customers whose consumption exceeds 30 cubic meters per month, and the rate of adjustment will be in the range of 16 percent.

Tariff details

Munir Al-Ghabri explained that the tariff increase was programmed since the beginning of 2022, but it was relatively late in order to complete technical studies, scenarios and possible variables until an approval of an increase was reached that takes into account the situation and the social impact on the company’s customers, who exceed 4 million customers.

He said, “The new tariffs were limited mainly to the major consumers of electricity and gas, who are domestic customers, taking into account the rest of the customers and social groups.”

In his explanation of the increase in electricity and gas bills in Tunisia, the official stated that the customer, whose electricity consumption is less than 200 kilowatt-hours per month, is not concerned with the new tariff, as his consumption has been billed at the same tariff approved since June 2019, which is the last period for approving a price movement. Electricity and gas in Tunisia.

And if the domestic customer’s electricity consumption exceeds 200 kilowatt-hours per month, a price of 218 millimes per kilowatt will be calculated, which is the maximum tariff for each consumption without benefiting from the split tariff.

With regard to customers whose monthly consumption of low-voltage electricity exceeds 500 kilowatt-hours per month, the first 200 kilowatts are calculated at 176 millimeters, then the next 100 kilowatts at a pricing of 218 millimeters, while the remaining 200 kilowatts are calculated at 341 millimeters per kilowatt.

With regard to adjusting natural gas prices for low-pressure customers, Al-Ghabri explained that there is no change in the natural gas tariff for domestic customers who consume 30 cubic meters per month or less. These clients represent 68 percent of the company’s clients.

He pointed out that if consumption exceeds 30 cubic meters to 60 cubic meters per month, the new tariff will pass from 341 to 368 millimeters per cubic meter, while the tariff for consumption ranging between 60 and 150 cubic meters will pass from 447 to 556 millimeters per cubic meter, while if it exceeds Consumption of 150 cubic meters, the tariff changes from 557 to 824 millimes, pointing out that the number of customers in this segment is estimated at about 32 percent.

And the spokesperson for the industrialists indicated that the rate of increase for high-voltage electricity customers reaches 12 percent, while the increase for medium-voltage customers is at a rate of 2.5 percent per month starting from May 2022 over a period of 6 months.

The increase in the consumption of natural gas for industrialists of high and medium pressure is estimated at 15 percent.

Ghabri stressed that as far as he understands the economic situation of Tunisians, this increase has been studied in a way that takes into account the consumption capacity of Tunisians, especially domestic customers.

He concluded by calling for more demand for energy control programs and rationalization of consumption, and the exploitation of all programs and mechanisms established by the state to install solar and photovoltaic collectors to reduce the electricity consumption bill.
