The document provides information of a increase to the fuel portion of electric rate (AFPAC) by 1.5cents in response to the various factor driving our fuel cost. These factors include the price of fuel and engine conditions to take effect for billings issued on or after October 1, 2015. In addition it also provides a summary table of the changes in the new rates will have on each tier of energy consumption in kWh increments.
The study assesses the potential and economic feasibility of LPG, LNG or CNG to meet medium term energy needs in PICTs. It considers the end-use applications of power generation, process heating, maritime transport, land transport, cooking and water heating. The existing fuels considered for substitution include heavy fuel oil (HFO), diesel, gasoline, kerosene and biomass.
International aviation fuel is excluded because gas does not offer a technologically viable alternative to aviation fuel at this stage.
