June 24, 2022: Central Power Purchasing Agency (CPPA-G) has sought a Rs7.96 per unit increase in power tariff for May under the monthly Fuel Cost Adjustment (FCA) mechanism.

According to the petition submitted to National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA), the CPPA-G maintained that the actual cost remained Rs13.8969 per unit against the reference fuel charges of Rs5.9322 per unit during April.

A total of 14,656 GWh of electricity was generated worth Rs192.784 billion during the said period while 14,264.95 GWh of net electricity was supplied to the power distribution companies (DISCOs).

Out of total generation, as many as 24.50 percent of electricity was generated from hydel, 13.77 percent Coal, 8.80 percent furnace oil, 9.9 percent local gas, 22.89 percent RLNG, 12.90 percent nuclear, and 5.32 percent Wind.

The regulator will hold a public hearing on June 27. The impact of the proposed increase will be passed on to all categories of consumers except lifeline.
