    Taipower seeking a 7% price hike to reflect rise of global crude (2018/08/09)

    Consumers have only just begun to feel the effects of summer power prices, and already Taipower wants to increase rates even more. Taipower says it wants a 7% increase to power prices to reflect a rise in global fuel prices.

    This dim-sum restaurant consumes a great deal of electricity. Besides the lights and air-conditioners, there are over 20 refrigerators that run 24/7. Power consumption tops 1,000 kilowatt hours a month, and the summer bill comes to NT$60,000. Hearing that power prices could go up, the restaurant's proprietor says he can't handle it.

    Cheng Ren-tsai
    Restaurant owner
    Rates go up in the summer and then in the winter too. I don't understand why the government has to increase prices at times like this. For ordinary folks and for business owners too, the situation makes you feel quite helpless.

    Summer price hikes have only just taken effect and already Taipower has put in a request to increase rates, pointing to a rise in global fuel prices. In the first half of the year, Taipower posted losses of NT$24 billion, with an extra NT$40 billion in fuel expenses. Taipower said it will request a 7% increase, or NT$0.18 more per average Kw/hour, when September's electricity price review committee convenes.

    Voice of Hsu Tsao-hua
    Taipower spokesperson
    Of course we hope for sustainable operations and for a price that reflects global prices. Taipower will prepare all relevant materials on cost so that the rate review committee can make their decision.

    To keep a potential power price hike from pushing up consumer prices, the rate review committee is likely to dip into the price-stability fund when the time comes to ease the effects of an adjustment.

    燃料成本漲 台電盼電價適度反映調漲7%

    這家港式茶餐廳用電量大,除了冷氣和電燈,還有20多台冰箱,24小時不停運轉,一個月用電量超過1000度,夏季電費要繳6萬多元,聽到電價可能又要調漲,大喊吃不消!

    [[餐廳業者 鄭人才]]
    "夏天也漲冬天也漲,我不了解政府為什麼,非在這時候漲價,但是以老百姓、經營者角度來看真的覺得說無奈。"

    夏季電價剛調整,台電又拋出漲價要求,強調因為燃料成本大增,上半年已經大虧240億元,台電粗估,總燃料成本多支出400億元,希望9月中召開的電價審議委員會,平均每度電能調漲0.18元、漲幅約7%。

    [[聲源:台電發言人 徐造華]]
    "我們當然我們希望能夠永續經營,對於整個電價也希望合理反映。台電公司會準備好相關成本資料供電價審議委員會決定。"

    不過,為避免電價調整帶動物價上漲,電價審議委員會也屆時可能透過電價平穩基金平抑應漲調幅。
