Hong Kong's electricity tax
The Government and the power companies are playing politics with the tariff, tilting it to tax larger residential consumers in order to subsidize the tariff for smaller ones. We call for a single flat-rate residential tariff and for it to be brought into line with the commercial tariff. Why should people be penalised for living together rather than on separate meters, or for spending more time at home, and why should they pay more than commercial users for the same amount of electricity?
