If the total amount of electricity used by registered households in the first month or the first 02 months or 03 consecutive months exceeds 150 kWh (allowing addition of 05 kWh for deviation of recording time of meter index), the seller will automatically transfer those households to the application of electricity selling price the same as common households specified in Clause 3, Article 11 of this Circular from the following month. The electricity consuming households are only allowed to re-register with the electricity seller at the price rate applicable for poor and low income households after12 months since being transferred to common households.

For domestic electricity purchaser having households commonly using the same meter (with separate family record book), the rate of electricity consumption for application of domestic electricity retail tariff specified in Clause 2, Article 11 of this Circular is calculated by the average electricity output for 01 household.

For example:

Case 1: In September 2013, a household registers and is applied with the domestic electricity retail tariff specified in Clause 2, Article 11 of this Circular. In September 2013, the amount the household has to pay is 43,692 dong, in which:

-  Electricity charge: 40 kWh x 993 dong/ kWh = 39, 720 dong

- VAT (10%) = 3.972 dong

If in September, October and November, the total amount of electricity used of that household is 160 kWh, the electricity seller will transfer that household to the application of electricity retail price the same as common households since December 2013.

Case 2: In September 2013, a household register and is applied with the domestic electricity retail tariff specified in Clause 2, Article 11 of this Circular. In September 2013, consuming 156 kWh, the amount the household has to pay is 235,305  dong, in which:

- Electricity charge:

- First 50 kWh:

- Next 50 kWh:

- Next 50 kWh:

- Next 6 kWh:

50 kWh x 993 d/kWh =        49,650 d

50 kWh x 1.418 d/kWh =     70,900 d

50 kWh x 1.622 d/kWh =      81,100 d

6 kWh x 2.044 d/kWb =     12,264 d

 

Total                    =

VAT 10%          =

213,914 d

21,391 d

Since October 2013, the electricity seller will transfer that household to the application of electricity retail price the same as common households.

Case 3: In September 2013, a household register and is applied with the domestic electricity retail tariff specified in Clause 2, Article 11 of this Circular. In September 2013, consuming 40 kWh, in October 2013 consuming kWh 120, the amount the household has to pay in October is 168,289 dong, in which:

- Electricity charge:

- First 50 kWh:

- Next 50 kWh:

- Next 20 kWh:

50 kWh x 993 d/kWh =      49.650 d

50 kWh x 1.418 d/kWh =     70.900 d

20 kWh x 1.622 d/kWh =      32.440 d

 

Total                    =

VAT 10%          =

152.990 d

15.299 d

Since November 2013, the electricity seller will transfer that household to the application of electricity retail price the same as common households.

b) The ladder electricity retail price specified in Clause 3, Article 11 is applicable to common households.

Ex: The electricity purchaser consuming 445 kWh in a month, the amount of money the purchaser has to pay is 980,210 d, in which:

- First 100 kWh:

- Next 50 kWh:

- Next 50 kWh:

- Next 100 kWh:

- Next 100 kWh:

- Next 45 kWh

100kWh x 1.418 d/kWh = 141.800 d

50 kWh x 1.622 d/kWh = 81.100 d

50 kWh x 2.044 d/kWh = 102.200 d

100 kWh x 2.210 d/kWh = 221.000 d

100 kWh x 2.361 d/kWh = 236.100 d

 45 kWh x 2.420 d/kWh = 108.900 d

 

Total                    =

VAT 10%          =

891.100 d

89.110 d

c) For domestic electricity purchaser having households commonly using the same meter (with separate family record book), the ladder electricity price is applied for these households on the principle that the general ladder rate of electricity purchaser is equal to power rate of each ladder specified in electricity tariff multiplied by the number of household using the same meter.

Ex: Case 1: The electricity purchaser including 04 households purchasing electricity through a meter, the ladder rate of domestic electricity retail price is calculated as follows:

- 100 kWh x 4 households = First 400 kWh at 1,418 d/ kWh

- 50 kWh x 4 households = Next 200 kWh at 1,622 d/kWh

- 50 kWh x 4 households = Next 200 kWh at 2,044 d/kWh

- 100 kWh x4 households = Next 400 kWh at 2,210 d/kWh

- 100 kWh x4 households = Next 400 kWh at 2,361d/kWh

- From 1,601st  kWh or more, the price is 2,420 d/kWh

Case 2: The electricity purchaser including 04 households registering the application of domestic electricity retail tariff specified in Clause 2, Article 11 of this Circular purchases electricity through a meter, the ladder rate of domestic electricity retail price is calculated as follows:

- 50 kWh x 4 households = First 200 kWh at 993 d/kWh

- 50 kWh x 4 households = Next 200 kWh at 1,418 d/kWh

- 50 kWh x 4 households = Next kWh at 1,622 d/kWh

- 50 kWh x 4 households = Next 200 kWh at 2.044 d/kWh

- 100 kWh x 4 households = Next 400 kWh at 2.210 d/kWh

- 100 kWh x 4 households = Next 400 kWh at 2,361 d/kWh

- From 1,601st kWh or more, the price is 2,420 d/kWh

d) The electricity buyer uses it for domestic purpose for dormitories of officials, employees, students, pupils and armed forces, houses of practitioners of religion applied as follows:

- In case of declaring a number of people, then 04 persons (based on the book of temporary residence registration or list of officials and soldiers certified by the head of unit for armed forces) are regarded as a household for application of ladder domestic electricity retail price specified at Point a, b of this Clause;

- In case of failing to declare a number of people, the ladder domestic electricity retail price from 151-200 kWh specified in Clause 1, Article 11 of this Circular will be applied for the entire electricity output measured at the meter.

dd) Customers purchasing electricity through separate transformer for domestic use will be applied with the ladder domestic electricity retail price.

e) The signing of electricity purchase contract for domestic purpose in case of house lease for residence is done as follows:

- At each address of a leased house, the electricity seller signs only one electricity sale and purchase contract. The landlord will present the tenant’s book of temporary residence registration;

- In case of household lease: the landlord will directly sign the electricity sale and purchase contract or authorizes the leasing household to sign it (with guaranteed payment for electricity bill). Each leasing household is given a rate.

- In case tenants are students and employees (tenants are not household), the electricity seller will publicly announce and provide the rate for the landlord based on the book of temporary residence registration. Just 04 persons are regarded as a household to apply the rate of ladder domestic electricity retail price, namely: 01 person is regarded as a fourth of rate, 02 persons are regarded as a half of rate, 03 persons are regarded as 3/4 of rate, 04 persons are regarded as 01 rate;

- In case tenants are students and employees with temporary residence from 12 months or more, the landlord will directly sign the electricity sale and purchase contract or the employees or students’ representative will do (with guaranteed payment for electricity bill from the landlord). If the lease term is less than 12 months, the landlord must directly sign this contract.

- If the tenant does not sign contract directly with the seller, the landlord will collect the tenant’s electricity charge according to the proper electricity retail price specified in the monthly electricity bill issued by electricity retailing unit plus 10% for loss, lighting cost and shared water pumping;

- When there is a change in the number of tenant, the landlord will inform the electricity seller to adjust the rate of calculation of power payment. The seller has a right to inspect and require the purchaser to present book of monthly temporary residence registration in order to determine a number of people for the rate upon calculation of electricity bill.

g) In case of force majeure, the Seller has to shift the time of meter reading, the amount of electricity used of each ladder of domestic electricity price is adjusted by the actual number of days of the reading period of that meter.

h) If the day of meter reading does not coincide with the day of electricity price adjustment, the calculation of electricity charge for the ladder domestic electricity price is done by using the interpolation method with the following parameters:

- Actual amount of electricity consumed by customer in the period of meter reading;

- Actual number of day of electricity use (a number of days between two periods of meter reading, a number of days applying old price and new price);

- Rate of electricity use of each ladder based on actual number of days between two periods of meter reading

i) The domestic electricity retail price specified in Clause 4, Article 11 of this Circular is applicable for group of customer making temporary or short-term purchase of electricity for domestic purpose and using pre-paid card meter. When meeting legal and technical conditions, the electricity retailing unit will install meters using prepaid cards at places where customers have a demand for purchasing electricity for domestic purpose.

IV. ELECTRICITY SELLING PRICE FOR RURAL AREAS

1. Rural electricity wholesale price

a) Rural electricity wholesale price is the electricity selling price sold by Electricity Corporation and Electricity Company to the rural electricity retailing units.

b) Electricity wholesale price for rural living

- Electricity wholesale price for rural living specified in Article 15 of this Circular applies to the electricity output used for domestic purpose of households consuming electricity at communes, hamlets and villages and purchased by the rural electricity retailing unit at the summation meter placed at the substation, regardless of the seller or purchaser’s substation and voltage level;

- Electricity wholesale price for rural living for the first 50 kWh specified in Clause 2, Article 15 of this Circular applies to the electricity output used of poor and low-income households with the frequent rate of electricity consumption not exceeding 50kWh/month and registered with the electricity selling party;

- Electricity wholesale price for rural living for the entire first 100 kWh and corresponding price for the following ladder specified in Clause 2, Article 15 of this Circular applies for the electricity output of common households and for kWh 51st onwards of poor and registered low-income households  with the electricity seller;

- Total electricity output for each ladder at the summation meter for calculation of electricity charge is equal to the power rate of each ladder specified in Clause 2, Article 15 of this Circular multiplied by the number of poor and registered low-income households  or the number of common household behind that summation meter;

- The number of household using electricity for rural living behind the summation meter is the number of household with permanent residence and long-term temporary residence within the scope of electricity supply from the summation meter and with certification of communal-level public security in charge of inhabitants and rate in electricity sale and purchase contract signed with the rural electricity retailing unit;

- The number of poor and low-income household registered behind the summation meter is determined based on the list of poor and registered low-income households  for application of retail tariff specified in Clause 2, Article 11 of this Circular and certified by the electricity purchaser’s legal representative . The electricity wholesaler may check and require the electricity purchaser to present electricity bill and papers evidencing the registration of poor and low-income households.

- The number of common household is equal to the number of household using electricity for rural living behind the summation meter minus the number of poor and low-income household;

- The calculation of electricity wholesale for rural living in the month of electricity price conversion is as follows: the electricity output of each ladder of electricity wholesale price for rural living applies for old and new price levels calculated by daily rate output multiplied by the actual number of day before and after adjustment of price of conversion month. The daily rate output of each ladder is equal to the output of each ladder divided by the actual number of day in the month of calculation.

c) The electricity wholesale price used for other purposes of electricity purchase behind the summation meter wholesaling rural electricity specified in Clause 3, Article 15 of this Circular applies to the amount of electricity used other than domestic purposes.

d) The electricity output with application of wholesale price for other purposes at the summation meter is determined by the total commercial electricity output used for other purposes measured at retail meters multiplied by 1.1.

dd) The electricity output with application of electricity wholesale price for rural living for poor and registered low-income households  is calculated by the total commercial electricity output of poor and registered low-income households  measured at retail meters multiplied by 1.1.

e) The electricity output with application of electricity wholesale price for rural living for common households is calculated by the total wholesale electricity output at the summation meter minus the electricity output with application of wholesale price of other purpose and the electricity output with application of electricity wholesale price for rural living for registered poor and low-income households;

In case customer using electricity behind summation meter are only registered poor and low-income households with application of electricity retail tariff specified in Clause 2, Article 11 of this Circular and customers using electricity for other purposes, the electricity output for the poor and low-income households is determined by the output at the summation meter minus electricity output with application of wholesale price for other purposes at the summation meter.

In case the customers using electricity behind the summation meter are only the poor and low-income households registering the application of electricity retail tariff specified in Clause 2, Article 11 of this Circular, the electricity wholesale price for the poor and low-income households is applied as specified in Clause 2, Article 15 of this Circular for the total output measured at the summation meter.

b) The wholesale electricity prices for living activities of tenement houses and residential clusters

- The wholesale electricity prices for living activities of tenement houses and residential clusters specified in Article 16 of this Circular are applicable to the power consumption for living activities of the households using electricity from electricity retailers measured by the master electricity meter at the transformer stations, regardless of the voltage levels;

- The wholesale electricity prices for living activities of tenement houses and residential clusters for the first 50 kWh prescribed in Clause 2 Article 16 of this Circular are applicable to the power consumption of poor and low-income households that regularly use no more than 50 kWh per month and have registered with the electricity sellers;

- The wholesale electricity prices for living activities of tenement houses and residential clusters for the first 100 kWh and the progressive prices for the upper levels prescribed in Clause 2 Article 16 of this Circular are applicable to the power consumption of normal households and for the 51st kWH onwards of the poor and low-income households that have registered with the electricity sellers;

- The power consumption in each level at the master electricity meter to calculate electricity charge is the power consumption quota of each level prescribed in Clause 2 Article 16 of this Circular, multiplied by the number of registered poor and low-income households, or the number of normal households following the master electricity meter;

- The number of households using electricity for living activities of tenement houses and residential clusters following the master electricity meter is the number of households that have permanent residences or long-term temporary residence, within the electricity supply of the master electricity meter, certified by the communal police agencies in charge of residence registration, and the limits in the electricity sale contracts signed with the electricity retailer;

- The number of registered poor and low-income households following the master electricity meter is determined based on the list of poor and low-income households that have registered for application of the retail tariff prescribed in Clause 2 Article 11 of this Circular, and certified by the legal representative of the electricity buyer. The electricity wholesaler may inspect and request the electricity buyer to present the electricity bills and papers proving the registration of the poor and low-income households;

- The number of other normal using-electricity households equals the number of households using electricity for living activities following the master electricity meter minus the number of registered poor and low-income households;

- The wholesale electricity charges for living activities of tenement houses and residential areas in the month when the electricity prices are converted shall be calculated as follows:  the power consumption in each level of the wholesale electricity prices for living activities of tenement houses and residential areas applied to the old and new prices equals the daily consumption limit multiplied by the number of actual days before and after the adjustment of the price of the converted month. The daily consumption limit of each level equals the power consumption of each level divided by the number of actual days in the calculated month.

c) When an electricity retailer buys electricity and sell to tenement houses of officers, workers, public employees, pupils, students, the armed forces, or houses of monks, the wholesale electricity prices shall be calculated as follows:

- If the number of people is identifiable, every 04 people will be considered as a household to charge the progressive electricity prices as prescribed Point b of this Clause;

- If the number of people is not identifiable, the progressive wholesale electricity prices from 151 to 200 kWh in respective areas as prescribed in Clause 2 Article 16 of this Circular shall apply.

d) The wholesale electricity prices for other purposes of tenement houses and residential clusters

- The wholesale electricity prices for tenement houses and residential clusters prescribed in Clause 3 Article 16 of this Circular are applicable to the power consumption for other purposes than living purposes;

- The power consumption that is charged at the other-purpose wholesale prices equals the total commercial power consumption at retail meters for other purposes multiplied by 1.1;

- The power consumption that is charged at the other-purpose wholesale prices applicable to new urban areas and high-rise apartment buildings equals the total commercial power consumption at retail meters for other purposes multiplied by 1.02.

dd) The power consumption that is charged at the wholesale electricity prices for living activities of tenement houses and residential areas applicable to registered poor and low-income households equals the total commercial power consumption of the registered poor and low-income households, measured by retail meters, multiplied by 1.1.

e) The power consumption that is charged at the wholesale electricity prices for living activities of tenement houses and residential areas applicable to normal households equals the total wholesale power consumption at the master electricity meter minus the power consumption that is charged at the other-purpose wholesale prices and the power consumption that is charged at the wholesale electricity prices for living activities of tenement houses and residential areas applicable to registered poor and low-income households.

When the customers using electricity following the master electricity meter only includes the poor and low-income households that register for application of the retail electricity tariff prescribed in Clause 2 Article 11 of this Circular, and the customers that use electricity for other purposes, then the amount of electricity used by poor and low-income households shall equal the power consumption measured by the master electricity meter minus the power consumption that is charged at the other-purpose wholesale prices at the master electricity meter.

When the customers using electricity following the master electricity meter only includes the poor and low-income households that register for application of the retail electricity tariff prescribed in Clause 2 Article 11 of this Circular, then the wholesale electricity prices applicable to the poor and low-income households prescribed in Clause 2 Article 15 of this Circular shall be charged on all power consumption measured by the master electricity meter.

Example:

Case 1: The master electricity meter at a transformer station (invested by the buyer – electricity retailer) supplies electricity for a residential cluster in township, comprising 50 households that use electricity for living purpose. 05 households therein register for the price tariff applicable to poor and low-income households; the total power consumption measured by retail meters of these households is 210 kWh. The power consumption measured by the master electricity meter in a month is 25,000 kWh. Apart from households, in scope of supplying electricity following this master electricity meter, there are some households that use electricity for other purposes (production, trading, and service provision) that have separate meters at household using electricity with total power consumption measured in month of 2,000 kWh.  The electricity charge payable by the electricity retailer to the electricity company for the power consumption measured at the master meter is calculated as follows:
