Here is some good news for all SoBo residents! Last week the Supreme court gave its final verdict on the long pending dispute between Tata Power and BEST. Now BEST consumers can switchover to a cheaper alternative; Tata Power and save on their electricity bills. This means an end of BEST’s monopoly over electricity supply in South Mumbai. However, SoBo residents will have to wait before they can reap the benefits of this ruling as Tata Power is yet to expand its transmission network across all of South Mumbai. Since the Supreme Court has not allowed Tata Power to use BEST’s existing transmission network, it will have to create its’ own network, which can take up to 6 months or more. At present, Tata Power has a limited network in a few areas of SoBo, from which a few may benefit. With the introduction of Tata Power as a major power provider in the island city, the electricity rates are expected to go down by almost 35% or more. This will be a huge difference from the exorbitant tariffs of BEST. Let’s hope for speedy work by Tata Power so that this difference can become a reality. We will be updating our calculators soon, so that you can easily calculate your savings and sign up to changeover to BEST 🙂
