The Yangon Region government will reduce electricity bills for factories and workshops that operate at night, according to a report in Myawady Daily yesterday.
“Electricity consumption is low at night, because only a small number of factories and workshops operate at night.
So, we can reduce the electricity bills if more electricity is used at night,” said an official from the regional government.
Currently, households pay Ks35 per unit for up to 100 units and Ks40 per unit for up to 200 units. Anything above 200 units costs Ks50 per unit.
Industrial users pay
Ks75 per unit, Ks100 and Ks150. From April, the
Ministry of Electricity and Energy has planned to change the meter system, depending on the usage of electricity.
