Tariff System
 

Tourism industry in Khumbu has substantially benefited the local population, however it has also created a huge income differences among the local population based on the tourism route.  KBC’s goal has been to provide reliable and affordable power supplies to the local population. Thus, KBC has designed a socially graduated tariff system to cope with this uneven income differences among the distributed lines. Currently, KBC applies two types of tariff system categorized as 1) Commercial tariff, and2) Social tariff.
