CLP to discuss with govt about next year's electricity tariff

CLP Group will discuss with the government about next year's electricity tariff, and will announce whether there will be a hike when appropriate, chief corporate development officer Quince Chong Wai-yan said.
The city's two power companies have increased the fuel cost adjustment this month. CLP increased it to 34.1 HK cents, while HK Electric raised it to 25.7 cents – an increase of 21 percent and 48 percent respectively as compared to January.

International fuel prices have been fluctuation, making it necessary to hike fuel cost adjustment, Chong said.
Electricity tariff is affected by a basket of factors, including fuel price and operating costs, she said.

Chong attended the launch ceremony for the company's CLP We Love Dance program, encouraging people across the city to dance, save energy, and help the underprivileged.

Electricity subsidies will be given to people in need through the CLP Power Connect program according to the number of dances completed by participants.

“The program is not only a creative way to encourage people to do more exercise during the pandemic, but also promote energy saving and help the people in need,” Secretary for the Environment Wong Kam-sing, who officiated the ceremony, said.
