CPPA-G seeks electricity hike of Rs4.05 per unit

  • National Electric Power Regulator Authority will hold a public hearing on May 31 to seek justification on the proposed raise.
Published May 20, 2022

The Central Power Purchasing Agency- Guaranteed (CPPA-G) on Friday sought an increase of Rs4.05 per unit in tariffs of Ex-WAPDA Distribution Companies (Discos) for April 2022, under the monthly Fuel Charges Adjustment (FCA) mechanism.

In its petition to National Electric Power Regulator Authority (NEPRA), CPPA-G said that since the reference fuel charges for March 2022 were estimated at Rs6.6087 per unit, an increase of Rs4.0554 per unit is required for April.

NEPRA will hold a public hearing on May 31 to seek justification from the officials of CPPA-G, NTDC and other relevant organizations on the proposed raise.

According to the data submitted to NEPRA, in April 2022, hydel generation was recorded at 2,404 GWh and constituted 18.55% of total generation in the entire month. Power generation from coal-fired power plants was 2,168.93 GWh (16.74% of total generation) at a rate of Rs14.33 per unit.
