The retail prices of electricity specified in Clause a and Clause b, Article 3 of Decision No. 276/2006/QD-TTg and the wholesale prices of electricity applicable to rural areas and dormitories and residential quarters specified in Decision No. 45/2006/QD-BCN apply to subjects that sign electricity purchase and sale contracts directly with units selling electricity from the national grid. The selling prices of electricity are based on electricity quality standards stipulated in the Government's Decree No. 105/2005/ND-CP of August 17, 2005, detailing and guiding the implementation of a number of articles of the Electricity Law.

3. The signing of electricity sale and purchase contracts complies with the provisions of the Electricity Law and other current regulations.

4. The selling prices of electricity must be correctly applied to proper subjects and for proper use purposes as guided in this Circular.

The electricity buyer has the responsibility to declare correctly the electricity use purposes for application of the selling price of electricity in accordance with this Circular.

If the electricity buyer changes the electricity use purpose, thus leading to price change, it must notify the electricity seller thereof 15 days in advance for adjustment of the contractual price. The electricity seller shall inspect and promptly apply a proper selling price of electricity to the electricity buyer according to regulations.

In case of wrong application of the price to an electricity user, thus causing damage to the electricity buyer or the electricity seller, an electricity charge shall be retrospectively collected or refunded. When the time of wrong application of the price cannot be determined, an electricity charge arising within 12 months preceding the time of detection of the wrong application shall be retrospectively collected or refunded.

5. When the electricity buyer uses electricity for different purposes at different prices, the electricity seller shall install separate meters for each price; Pending the installation of separate meters, the electricity buyer and seller shall base on the actual use of electricity to determine the specific percentages of electricity volume at each price and include them in the electricity purchase and sale contract.

6. If the electricity buyer uses electricity during the time when the electricity meter is lost or does not work, the volume of the used electricity shall be determined under the provisions of Clause 3, Article 14 of the Government's Decree No. 105/2005/ND-CP and of the electricity purchase and sale contract. The applicable electricity price accords with the electricity use purpose indicated in the electricity purchase and sale contract.

7. The retail prices of electricity sold directly by independent electricity generation units to electricity-using organizations and individuals comply with the provisions of Point c, Article 3 of Decision No. 276/2006/QD-TTg.

8. In this Circular, the terms below are construed as follows:

a/ Electricity buyer means an organization or individual signing a contract on purchase of electricity from the electricity seller for direct use or resale to other organizations or individuals.

b/ Electricity seller means a unit that wholesales or retails electricity and is licensed to conduct electricity activities in the domain of electricity wholesale and retail.

II. RETAIL PRICES OF ELECTRICITY BASED ON VOLTAGE LEVELS AND USE TIME IN THE DAY

1. Voltage-based selling prices of electricity

The voltage-based selling prices of electricity stipulated in Decision No. 276/QD-TTg apply to all electricity buyers, excluding those buying electricity at the retail prices of electricity used for daily life and at the wholesale prices of electricity applicable to rural areas, dormitories and residential quarters.

Electricity charges shall be calculated based on the prices set for the voltage level at which the electricity measurement or recording system is installed.

2. Selling prices of electricity based on use time in the day.

2.1. The selling prices of electricity are set according to the time of using electricity in the day (hereinafter called the three-price form).

a/ The time of using electricity in the day for application of the three-price form is prescribed as follows:

- Regular hours: From 04.00 hrs to 18.00 hrs (14 hours).

- Peak hours: From 18.00 hrs to 22.00 hrs (4 hours).

- Off-peak hours: From 22.00 hrs to 04.00 hrs of the following day (6 hours).

b/ The selling prices of electricity in the three-price form are applied to the following electricity buyers:

- Electricity buyers that use electricity for water pumping for irrigation for rice, subsidiary crops or intercropped short-term industrial plants.

c/ The purchase of electricity in the three-price form is encouraged for electricity buyers that use electricity for production, business and service purposes with an electricity volume lower than the above-prescribed level and have transformers;

The electricity seller has the responsibility to create conditions and provide guidance for the electricity buyer to install three-price meters.

2.2. The electricity seller shall prepare sufficient electricity meters to be installed for electricity buyers subject to the application of the three-price form. Pending the installation of three-price electricity meters by the electricity seller, the selling prices of electricity for regular hours shall be applied.

2.3. When the electricity seller is able to install three-price meters and sends a written notice in advance on the plan on installation of a three-price meter to the electricity buyer that is subject to the application of the three-price form, the electricity buyer shall coordinate with the electricity seller in facilitating the installation of the three-price meter.

If the electricity buyer subject to the application of the three-price form still refuses the installation of a three-price meter after it has been notified three times by the electricity seller, after 15 days counting from the first notification, the electricity seller may apply the selling price of electricity applicable during peak hours to the whole used volume of electricity till a three-price meter is installed.

2.4. When an electricity buyer subject to the application of the three-price form has organizations and individuals that uses a common electricity meter and are not subject to the application of the three-price form, the electricity seller shall install separate electricity meters for such organizations and individuals as principal users to directly sign electricity purchase and sale contracts.

If the technical conditions do not permit the installation of separate meters for signing contracts with organizations and individuals that are using a common meter, the electricity seller shall install three-price meters for such organizations and individuals and deduct electricity volume according to their actual use. Pending the installation of three-price meters, these organizations and individuals that use a common meter are entitled to the electricity price applicable during regular hours.

Example: Factory A is an electricity buyer having a transformer of 560 kVA and being subject to the application of the three-price form. It has organizations and individuals that use a common meter but are not subject to the three-price form, including:

- The factory's dormitory using electricity for daily life and eligible for the wholesale price of electricity used for daily life.

- Vocational training school B eligible for the electricity price applicable to non-business administrative agencies.

These electricity users, which share a common meter, are entitled to the installation of a three-price meter for deduction of electricity volume. So, the use time-based electricity volume of factory A is calculated as follows:

3. Progressive retail prices of electricity used for daily-life activities:

3.1. Progressive retail prices of electricity used for daily-life activities apply to households using electricity for their daily-life needs under electricity purchase and sale contracts signed with electricity sellers.

Examples on the calculation of monthly electricity charges are as follows:

Case 1: The electricity buyer uses 60 kWh in the month.

The money amount payable by the electricity buyer is VND 36,300, including:

+ The electricity charge for 60 kWh x VND 550/kWh = VND 33,000

+ The value added tax (10%) = VND 3,300

Case 2: The electricity buyer uses 500 kWh in the month

The money amount payable by the electricity buyer is VND 763,400, including:

- The first 100 kWh:

100 kWh x VND 550/kWh = VND 55,000

- The next 50 kWh:

50 kWh x VND 1,110/kWh = VND 55,500

- The next 50 kWh:

50 kWh x VND 1,470/kWh = VND 73,500

- The next 100 kWh:

100 kWh x VND 1,600/kWh = VND 160,000

- The next 100 kWh:

100 kWh x VND 1,720/kWh = VND 172,000

- The remaining 100 kWh:

100 kWh x VND 1,780/kWh = VND 178,000

Total electricity charge = VND 694.000

VAT 10% = VND 69,400

3.2. The electricity buyer that has separate households using a common meter (with separate household registration books) should request the electricity seller to install separate meters for each household so that these households can sign electricity purchase and sale contracts directly with the electricity seller.

Pending the installation of separate meters for households by the electricity seller, the retail price of electricity is temporarily applied as follows: For an electricity buyer that has less than 10 electricity-using households in towns, townships, district capitals, suburbs of cities, or less than 15 households in inner city areas, the progressive retail prices of electricity are applied to such households on the principle that the common progressive level for the electricity buyer is equal to the maximum electricity volume of each level prescribed in the electricity price bracket multiplied by the number of households using the common meter.

Example: An electricity buyer has 4 households using electricity through one meter, the electricity charge is calculated at the progressive retail prices of electricity used for their daily-life activities as follows:

- 100 kWh x 4 households = The first 400 kWh at the price of VND 550/kWh

- 50 kWh x 4 households = The next 200 kWh at the price of VND 1,110/kWh.

- 50 kWh x 4 households = The next 200 kWh at the price of VND 1,470/kWh

- 100 kWh x 4 households = The next 400 kWh at the price of VND 1,600/kWh

- 100 kWh x 4 households = The next 400 kWh at the price of VND 1,720/kWh

- From kWh No. 1601 on, the price of VND 1,780/kWh applies.

3.3. For an electricity buyer being one household signing many contracts for daily-life electricity purchase and sale (for each contract, a meter is installed) and using electricity for daily-life activities at one location, the volume for calculation of the electricity charge at the progressive price of electricity used for daily life is the aggregate of electricity volumes recorded by the meters at the location of that household.

3.4. When an electricity buyer that signs a contract to buy electricity for daily-life activities at the progressive retail price of electricity used for daily life conducts other activities (production, business...) and uses electricity through the meter of electricity used for daily life: If the electricity volume measured by the meter is no more than 50 kWh/household (with a separate household registration book), the electricity charge is calculated at the progressive price of electricity used for daily life; if it is over 50 kWh/household, the electricity charge is calculated at the price for every use purpose according to the percentage indicated in the contract.

Example: An electricity buyer signing a contract on purchase of electricity for daily-life needs with the progressive retail price of electricity used for daily-life conducts production, business and/or service activities and uses electricity through a meter of electricity used for daily life. The electricity buyer and seller agree in the contract that electricity used for daily-life is 80%, electricity for production 10%, and electricity for business 10%.

+ If in the month this household uses 45 kWh/month, 100% the price of electricity used for daily life applies at the rate of VND 550/kWh for the first 100 kWh.

+ If in the month this household uses 150 kWh, the electricity charge is calculated as follows:

- The electricity volume subject to the progressive price of electricity used for daily life: 120 kWh (150 kWh x 80%)

+ The first 100 kWh at the price of VND 550/kWh

+ The next 20 kWh at the price of VND 1,110/kWh.

- The electricity volume subject to the price of electricity used for production: 15 kWh (150 kWh x 10%);

- The electricity volume subject to the price of electricity used for business: 15 kWh (150 kWh x 10%);

3.5. For customers buying electricity through their separate transformers for daily-life purposes, the electricity charges are calculated based on the progressive retail prices of electricity used for daily life.

3.6. The signing of electricity purchase contracts with tenants for daily-life purposes is effected as follows:

a/ At each address of a rented house (according to the lessor's house ownership paper), the electricity seller shall sign only one electricity purchase and sale contract, which is a tripartite contract signed between the electricity seller, the person directly signing the house renting contract or a representative of tenants (when more than one person jointly sign the house renting contract) and the owner of the rented house. When a tenant fails to pay an electricity charge for any reason, the owner of the rented house shall pay the electricity charge for the tenant.

b/ When at the address of a rented house there is already an electricity purchase and sale contract (signed by the lessor or the former tenant), the electricity seller shall sign a new electricity purchase and sale contract only after the old one has been liquidated.

c/ If students or laborers rent houses for stay (for 12 months or more) and the house owner is the electricity buyer that signs an electricity purchase and sale contract directly with the electricity seller, every 4 persons (based on temporary residence registration papers and the house renting contract with the certification by local authorities) shall be counted as one electricity-using household subject to the progressive retail price of daily-life electricity.

3.7. When, due to a force majeure reason, the electricity seller adjusts the time of recording meter readings, the electricity volume norm for every progressive electricity price level shall be adjusted correspondingly to the number of adjusted days.

4. Selling prices of electricity used for business activities:

The selling prices of electricity used for business activities apply to users of electricity for business or service purposes, including:

1.4. In case of non-availability of separate meters for different use purposes, then

a/ The electricity buyer and seller shall base themselves on the actual use of electricity to determine the specific percentage of electricity volume used for each purpose as a basis for application of the electricity price. The determination of percentages of electricity volume used for each purpose is as follows:

+ Before the 10th day every month, the electricity buyer shall supply to the electricity seller the list of, and electricity volumes directly sold to, households using electricity for daily-life activities and other purposes in the previous month. On the basis of the list of customers and electricity volumes directly sold for different purposes in the previous months, which is supplied by the electricity buyer, the electricity seller and buyer shall together determine the percentage of electricity volume used for each purpose as a basis of the application of the selling price of electricity for the subsequent month.

+ If the electricity buyer that buys electricity at the wholesale price for retail fails to supply the list of customers and directly sold electricity volumes as required (without a plausible reason), the electricity seller is entitled to apply the price of electricity used for other purposes to 100% of the sold electricity volume.

- In case of necessity and for households using electricity for daily life with a volume exceeding 100 kWh per month (according to the list supplied by the electricity buyer), the electricity seller is entitled to inspect and the electricity buyer has the responsibility to coordinate with the electricity seller in inspecting the use of electricity so as to ensure that electricity is used thriftily and for proper purposes.
