The 10 major electric power companies announced their electricity bills for June. Nine out of 6 companies are unchanged from the previous month, but seven companies, including TEPCO and Tohoku Electric Power, have applied to the government for price increases, and if approved, their rates may be raised.
According to the announcements of each company, the "regulatory fee" charged by households with the largest number of subscribers in June is 6 yen for Chubu Electric Power ▽ 6945 yen for TEPCO ▽ 6809 yen for Hokkaido Electric Power ▽ 6781
for Okinawa Electric Power Company ▽ 6494 yen for Tohoku Electric Power ▽ 6212 yen for Chugoku Electric Power ▽ 6053 yen for Shikoku Electric Power ▽ 5562 yen for Kansai Electric Power ▽ 5236 yen
for Hokuriku Electric Power, the same as in May.
On the other hand, Kyushu Electric Power will drop by 4590 yen to 5 yen due to the decline in fuel prices.
Regarding regulatory charges, seven of the 5251 major electric power companies, including TEPCO and Tohoku Electric Power, have applied to the government for a price increase of more than 3% to 10%.
Currently, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry is examining whether the price increase of each company is appropriate, and there is a possibility that the fee will be increased from the amount billed after June at the earliest.
On the other hand, gas charges for June bills will decrease for all four major companies due to the decline in LNG = liquefied natural gas prices.
Compared to May, for
households with average usage, Toho Gas fell 7 yen to 17,46 yen ▽ Seibu Gas fell 6 yen to 6,4 yen ▽ Osaka Gas fell 5 yen to 246,6826 yen
▽Tokyo Gas fell 180 yen to 6418 yen.
