Possibly higher power bill for CLP users
(12-10 17:50)

CLP Power is seeking a 3.9 percent tariff rise for next year. But Hong Kong Electric has frozen charges and says it has no plans to increase them for the next five years.
The CLP rise will affect about two thirds of households and more than 50 percent of small companies. It also predicts an average annual increase of 1.8 percent over the next five years, citing higher fuel costs.
CLP imposed a 5.9 percent increase earlier this year, while Hong Kong Electric bills went up by 2.9 percent. --RTHK
