New electricity tariffs for heavy consumers will start at the end of this Iranian month (June 21).
After parliament rejected a government proposal to raise tariffs for subscribers across the board, the government made changes to the bill and it was finally ratified by the Majlis, and came into effect from May 22, the Persian-language economic newspaper Donya-e-Eqtesad reported.
As per the new rules, electricity tariff will increase by 23% for consumers who do not comply with the announced patterns from June to September, when both the temperature and power consumption rise phenomenally.
The Energy Ministry says close to 80% of consumers are in the average 300-kilowatt hour bracket per month, which is set as a basic consumption model. Consumers in this category will be eligible for a discount in their billing if they consume less electricity in the four months compared to the same period a year ago.
