NEPRA Increases Electricity Prices by Rs. 0.527 Per Unit

The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) has increased power tariff by Rs. 0.5272 per unit for domestic consumers.

This increase is due to quarterly adjustments and interim relief to the power distribution companies (Discos), said an official notification from NEPRA. This will allow Discos to recover Rs. 52.7 billion from domestic users.

The power regulator issued two separate notifications on Saturday for quarterly/ biannual adjustments and interim relief.

The first order notified an increment of Rs 0.3325 per unit in tariff for fuel adjustments from January 1, 2019, to June 30, 2019. It will have an impact Rs. 33 billion in recoveries. The other notification will allow power distributors to recover Rs. 19.7 billion, with an increase of Rs. 0.1947 per unit.

The new tariff will be applicable immediately.

  • The increased tariff is due to fuel adjust costs inflation for DISCOS. It is alright. Important as per IEA reccomendations of renewable energy usages is most essential to cope with the Climate Change and the resulting fossil fuel costs. Why the DISCOS are not providing SolarPV on the roof top of the consumer so they could use power in the absence of shut down, load shedding, break down etc. KE should waive all charges for upgradation to Net Metering, so Net Metering could be used. The charges which are taken by KE are the highest among the NEPRA DISCOS for Net Metering. KE should adjust the senior citizens for Federal Taxes which are exempt globally for Federal Taxes on Electricity. Please forward and reccomend to NEPRA.
