The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) approved a rise in the K-Electric (KE) customers’ electricity rate of Rs4.49 on Friday.
The federal government had requested Nepra to notify all of KE’s customers of an increased tariff of Rs4.49 per unit beginning in January 2023.
According to the Power Division’s earlier statement to Nepra, “Such adjustment shall be imposed on the consumption of, October, November, December and January of 2023 to be recovered from users in January, February, March and April 2023.”
The government may continue to use a single consumer-end price for K-Electric and state-owned power distribution companies under the National Electricity Policy 2021.
On January 11, the Nepra previously announced a reduction in the price of electricity for KE subscribers by Rs7.43 per unit due to a fuel cost adjustment (FCA) for November 2022.
