Wednesday, NEPRA stated that K-Electric (KE) customers will see a drop in their power tariff of Rs7.43 per unit for the month of November 2022 due to fuel cost adjustment (FCA).
After a public hearing to review the monthly fuel adjustment (MFA) on a petition submitted by the Central Power Purchasing Agency-Guarantee, a decrease in tariff was granted.
Nepra estimated that the move will save electricity users Rs10.61 billion.
This will not apply to lifeline consumers, domestic customers consuming up to 300 units, agricultural consumers, or charging stations for electric vehicles.
The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA), on the other hand, has authorised a hike in power tariff of Rs0.19 per unit for the rest of the nation due to monthly fuel adjustment (MFA).
Following a public hearing on the Monthly Fuel Adjustment (MFA) petition submitted by the Central Power Purchasing Agency-Guarantee, a rate increase was authorised.
The NEPRA has announced the impending power rate hike, with the new rate taking effect in January 2023.
