Paying forward - Electricity tariff 21.5% hike
Oil prices falling but Singaporeans are going to face the biggest electricity tariff hike in 8 years. And they are expected to pay 21.5% more for the rest of this year. And Singaporeans should count themselves lucky. The Energy Market Authority CEO Khoo Chin Hean said it could have been worst. Luckily we buy forward and thus only need to pay a smaller hike. Singaporeans got to be thankful. I think we should find a way to buy spot when it is cheap and buy futures when it is cheap. Can there be a way that does not restrict the buyers to just buy future when it is high despite cheaper spot price? Storage and delivery?
