Support for power cost

Sunday, January 07, 2018

Update: 7:03PM PRIME Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says there a network for support in place by the Fijian Government to help families pay for their electricity bills.

Mr Bainimarama said families earning less than $30, 000 dollars a year and using 100 kilowatt hours or less electricity a month qualifies for the government�s initiative.

"Our initiative was only about making services available; it was about making those services accessible and affordable," Mr Bainimarama said.

"My government has a network of support in place to support eligible Fijians with a fifty per cent subsidy on electricity bills."

He said people who meet the requirements should apply at any Fiji Electricity Authority office.

"This project has been made possible by Fiji�s prosperity, and only through greater prosperity can more development take place in our beloved Fiji."
