Manufacturer’s cost of doing business

In ensuring that our members operate at lower costs of production, UMA objected to the Electricity Regulatory Authority’s introduction of the monthly tariff adjustment of power tariffs i.e. that power tariffs be determined by factors such as international fuel prices, inflation and the foreign exchange rate. Through our lobbying ERA opted for a quarterly tariff adjustment of power currently being applied. Since its introduction we have seen a reduction in power tariffs by between 2% to 0.8% for medium and large industrial users respectively.
