The RA reduces the Retail Tariff for the second year in a row. With a focus on providing relief to consumers due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Retail Tariff ("RT") has been reduced. The RT is the rate at which electricity per kilowatt hour is sold to consumer and is reflected on a BELCO bill as the ‘Usage Charge’. The RA is mandated by law to promote and preserve competition; promote the development of the Bermudian economy; and promote innovation in the sectors it regulates. As such, the RA is pleased to provide updates on three initiatives in the Electricity and Electronic Communications sectors. 1. RA lifts the moratorium on 5G.
