The Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) is finding new ways to manage the fuel needed to generate electricity amid rising fuel costs. The aim is to slow the rate of rising energy prices while urging the general public to contribute to saving energy.
ERC Secretary General Komkrit Tantravanich said the bureau will consider natural gas pricing calculations and use a diesel and heating oil tax-free system to determine the average cost of electricity consumption. .
These adjusted calculations will be in line with recent changes to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) to use more diesel and fuel oil for power generation, as they are cheaper than liquefied natural gas (LNG). ) imported.
Natural gas production in the Gulf of Thailand is also seeing a decline due to a transition in energy concessions.
Komkrit added that with energy prices expected to continue to rise due to the global price crisis, the general public is urged to consume energy more efficiently.(NNT)
