The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) Thursday approved a Rs3.27 per unit increase in the electricity prices on account of monthly fuel cost adjustment, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
According to a notification issued by the Nepra, the increase in the electricity prices will be applied to April bills.
Meanwhile, the Nepra also conducted a hearing on the proposal for a Rs4.68 increase in electricity prices on account of monthly fuel cost adjustment for the month of February.
“14 per cent less electricity was generated through hydel energy in the month of February,” said the Nepra officials and added that the shortfall was offset by furnace oil and LNG production. They also pointed out a global rise in fuel prices.
