NEPRA increases K-Electric’s tariff, but the company isn’t pleased

The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) has increased the multi-year base tariff for K-Electric by Rs0.70 per unit, but it falls short of expectations of the power utility that sought a rate of Rs15.5 per unit.

At present, K-Electric’s end-consumer tariff is Rs12.07 per unit, which will go up to Rs12.77. The new tariff will come into effect retrospectively from July 2016. In a statement, however, K-Electric said the higher base tariff would have no impact on the end-consumer tariff in line with the uniform tariff policy implemented across Pakistan.
