Financial Associated Press, November 9 - the environment bureau of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region government, Hong Kong Electric Light Co., Ltd., China Light Power Co., Ltd. and Castle Peak Power Generation Co., Ltd. held a press conference on the 9th to announce the electricity tariff adjustment of the two power companies in Hong Kong in 2022. Among them, the average net electricity charge of HEC will be increased by 7% to 135.3 cents per kWh (Hong Kong dollars, the same below); CLP will raise 5.8% to 128.9 points per degree in response to the soaring global fuel prices and in line with Hong Kong's carbon reduction target. The adjustment will be implemented from January next year. The Secretary for the environment, Mr Wong Kam sing, said that Hong Kong had always enjoyed a fairly stable power supply, but the rise in global fuel costs made it inevitable for electricity tariffs to rise. According to the estimation of the two power companies, the average monthly electricity charge for a typical three person family is about 275 yuan at present, and will increase by about 20 yuan to 24 yuan each month next year.
