NEPRA increases K-Electric’s multi-year tariff by Rs0.05

SLAMABAD: The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) has turned down a plea of K-Electric for a significant hike in its multi-year tariff and raised it just by Rs0.05 per unit.

Earlier, the regulator had set the tariff for K-Electric – a private power utility – at Rs12.07 per unit on March 20, 2017, but it did not satisfy the company that filed a review petition for jacking up the tariff.

In its decision, the regulator increased the tariff by Rs0.70 to Rs12.77 per unit, which was still far below the tariff sought by K-Electric.
