I believe there is a need for Fiji Electricity Authority to make known to the public the uncertainties concerning consumer security deposit.
What happens when continuing review of consumer security deposit is less than the required deposit held by FEA?
Are consumers refunded for extra deposit?
What is the total amount of money held as security deposit?
What is the total interest earned for security deposits over the past several years?
Where are the security deposits held and who is benefiting from interest earned over past years?
As required under Section 62(1) and (2) of the Electricity Act, I believe FEA is required to carry out a review of security deposits and bill consumers to pay additional deposit when monthly average power bill for the past six months exceeds the required deposit.
I believe there is a need for government to review the Electricity Act which is outdated.
