Nepra increases KE tariff by 5 paisa/unit

ISLAMABAD: National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra ) has increased K-Electric’s average multi-year (seven year) tariff by 5 paisa per unit to Rs 12.8172 per unit from Rs 12.77 per unit on the basis of two accounts i.e. dollar indexation on transmission and real CPI.

This increase has been allowed on a tariff reconsideration petition filed by the federal government on the request of K-Electric.

Giving justification, an official stated that Nepra had allowed dollar indexation on generation and distribution which has been extended to transmission (this incentive is already available to Matiari transmission project). KE has also been allowed actual CPI on the pattern of IPPs by removing flat rate of CPI.
