SINGAPORE: The electricity tariff will fall by an average of 15 per cent for the period from Jul 1 to Sep 30 due to lower energy costs, said SP Group on Tuesday (Jun 30). 

Households will see a drop in the tariff from 23.02 cents to 19.60 cents per kilowatt hour, said SP Group in a media release.

The latest tariff is the lowest since the October to December period in 2016, when it was at 19.13 cents per kWh.
