Officials from organizer of the conference, district economic promotion bureau said that standardizing electricity price is to remove ‘shackle’ from manufacturing enterprises, to reduce the burden on enterprises in park, to improve the operation level of the park and to support the development of the real economy.
Electricity price is made by government, and no organization is allowed to adjust or change it. The price should not be raised by any reason or method, and users should not be charged with any relevant fees. However, many parks and enterprises do not understand this well. Journalists learned from the meeting that since the 1980s, ‘Middle Tier’ has been existing in 211 of 651 industrial parks built, and in most of which there is surcharging behavior. According to statistics, "middle tier" in the district charges the enterprises an extra electricity fee of 0.3433 yuan / kWh than the average electricity price of Longhua Power Supply Bureau, resulting in an over charging of 171 million yuan in six months.
