Rs150bn loss at generation stage alarms Nepra

Expressing serious concerns over the dismal performance of public sector generation companies (Gencos), the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) estimated loss of more than 15 billion electricity units — way beyond permissible limits — in two years.

The cumulative revenue losses on account of the higher than auxiliary consumption of 15bn units by Gencos are estimated at around Rs150bn.
