Electricity tariff goes up by Rs2.24/unit: NEPRA

The power tariff has been going up by Rs2.24 per unit, as per a notification released by the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA).


The Central Power Purchasing Agency (CPPA) had pleaded that the power suppliers should be allowed a tariff raise of Rs2.19 per unit as the fuel cost of power generation jumped to Rs11.77 per unit against reference price of Rs9.58 in January. NEPRA, however, allowed the power distribution suppliers to raise the power tariff by Rs2.24 per unit, on account of fuel price adjustment in January.

The tariff will affect the customer bills in March but customers of K-Electric (formerly called Karachi Electric Supply Company, KESC) and lifeline customers using up to 50 units per month will not affect.
