Discos ordered to refund Rs2.29/unit

ISLAMABAD: The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) on Tuesday ordered ex-Wapda distribution companies (Discos) to refund Rs2.29 per unit to consumers for overcharging them about Rs20 billion in February.

On behalf of the ex-Wapda distribution companies, CPPA said the consumers need to be refunded Rs2.20 per unit because they were charged at a higher fuel price of Rs7.26 per unit in February against actual fuel cost Rs5.07 per unit due to lower fuel cost and favourable energy mix.
