Tariff to be introduced for solid waste-based power generation

The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) on Monday approved a 25-year levellised upfront tariff of 10 cents per unit (kWh) for Municipal Solid Waste-based power generation of a maximum 250MW capacity.

This is the first upfront tariff for power generation through municipal solid waste. The regulator said the special tariff was approved through a consultative process keeping in view the environmental issues caused by abundant municipal waste in the country.
