Central Power Purchasing Agency on Saturday recommended increasing power tariff by Rs6.10 per unit. In a request submitted to the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority, the Central Power Purchasing Agency sought Rs6.10 per unit increase in power tariff under fuel adjustment for the month of January.
NEPRA will hear the plea on February 28 in which price hike and collection of additional billions of rupees is requested. In the month of October 5.83% electricity was produced from water, 33.15% from coal, 6.73% from furnace oil, 14.07% from natural gas, 14.37 from imported LNG and 14.37% from nuclear power.
Electricity rates are likely to be jacked up by Rs6.10 per unit after a request for the same by Central Power Purchasing Agency has been made to the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority.
