ISLAMABAD, Pakistan – The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) has received a petition demanding a Rs3.15 per unit rise in power prices in March 2022 due to changes in fuel prices.
The application was sent by the Central Power Purchasing Agency (CPPA), and it will be heard by Nepra on April 27. If the raise is accepted, the public would be saddled with a Rs30 billion charge.
According to the CPA’s appeal, a total of 10 billion units were produced in March at a cost of Rs94 billion.
In March, the CPPA notified the regulatory body that the per unit cost of power generated from thermal oil was Rs22.52, while the cost of energy generated from LNG was Rs14.36.
According to the electricity regulatory, the ruling will have no impact on K-Electric customers.
