ISLAMABAD: National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) has accorded approval to scale down power tariff by 31 paisas per unit.
The petition with reference to the reduction in power tariff came up for hearing before NEPRA here on Thursday.
Central Power Purchasing Agency (CPPA) while requesting for a reduction in power tariff said electricity production cost remained at Rs4.71 per unit in November and the consumers were supplied electricity at the rate of Rs5 per units. Meanwhile, CPPA also stated that 20.04 per cent electricity has been generated from local gas and 17.23 per cent electricity has been generated from imported LNG.
NEPRA while accepting the petition approved the reduction in electricity tariff by 31 paisas per unit. This way the consumers will get an aggregated relief to the tune of Rs2 billion. The reduction in power tariff was made under fuel adjustment surcharge for the month of November.
