The Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi Limited (ESCOM) is a public utility incorporated as a private company under the Companies Act (Cap 46:03) of the Laws of Malawi in 1998. The 2016 Electricity Amendment Act resulted in the unbundling of ESCOM into the Electricity Generation Company of Malawi Limited (EGENCO) and the Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi Limited (ESCOM). The Single Buyer (SB) and System Market Operator (SMO) functions were added to existing functions in ESCOM [Transmission and Distribution functions.
ESCOM is currently Implementing the Second Base Tariff which was approved by the Malawi Energy Regulator for the period July 2014 to June 2018. ESCOM is required to submit a new Base Tariff application to the Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (MERA) once every four years for consideration and approval. This application covers the successor Third Base Tariff covering the period from July 2018 to June 2022 for each of the ESCOM functions, the Bulk Customer Supply and the End user tariff. This Base Tariff has been prepared in line with the new tariff methodology, the recently concluded tariff study and cost of service Study.
