New Project - Lesotho Cost of Service and Tariff Study
MRC Group has recently signed a contract for the Electricity Cost of Service and Tariff Study in Lesotho. The Lesotho Electricity and Water Authority (LEWA) has received funding from the African Development Bank (AfDB) to finance the cost of service study and the design of economic cost reflective tariffs. The objectives of the study are twofold: firstly, to set electricity tariffs to promote economic efficiency of production and consumption, and ensure financial viability of the electricity sector while taking into account social and equality consideratins and secondly to provide a basis of strategy formulation for the gradual transition from existing financial-cost based tariffs to economic cost reflective tariffs, setting of targeted life-line tariffs and associated subsidy mechanism.
