There is not likely to be any change in the electricity rate any time soon. On Tuesday, the Public Utilities Commission appeared to agree with Belize Electricity Limited that no changes be made to the Mean Electricity Rate, which is currently at just under thirty-seven cents per kilowatt hour. Previously, the P.U.C. had recommended a slight reduction – only seven-thousandths of a cent. But it now believes that the proposed decrease is too insignificant to have any impact on the tariffs. If there are no objections from B.E.L. the decision goes into effect for June first.
