ISLAMABAD: National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) has approved an increase of Rs 7.82 per unit in KE’s tariff for four quarters under quarterly tariff adjustment mechanism.

According to two different determinations, KE had sought positive adjustments in its tariff under the QTA mechanism, of which Re 0.366 per unit was sought for Jan-March 2021 and Re 0.712 per unit for April-June 2021, Rs 5.182 per unit for July-September 2021 and Re 0.302 per unit for October–December 2021.

The regulator has approved an increase of Rs 6.49 per unit for July-September 2021 adjustment, Re 0.33 per unit in January-March 2021 whereas a reduction of Re 0.95 per unit has approved for April-June 2021 and Re 0.47 per unit for October-December 2021.

KE’s tariff up by Rs4.8/unit for March

Nepra has sent both tariff determinations to the federal government for notification.

Recently, both Power Division and Finance Division evolved consensus to pass on Quarterly Tariff Adjustment (QTA) notification impact of Rs 113.1 billion to the consumers of K-Electric by way of surcharge of Rs 2.35/ unit to be recovered in three years.

Power Division has also proposed that it may be authorized to file a motion before Nepra for incorporation adjustment in the Schedule of Tariff (SoT) of Nepra determination of November 05 2021.

Nepra may be requested to issue revised SoT for KE with prospective application of applicable uniform rates after incorporating the proposal to notify in the official gazette by way of modification in SRO Nos.1429(1) 2021, 192(1)/2021, 1037(1)2020 and 575(1) 2019.

Further upon such notification, K-Electric will be directed that such surcharge collected shall be omitted to CPPA-G immediately to reduce the large outstanding payable. Both these proposals have also been supported by the Finance Ministry.

PAKISTAN HAS BEEN TRAPPED BY THE CAPACITY CHARGE IPPs AS GOP HAS TO TRADE OFF,THE LOWEST CAPACITY CHARGES TO BE PAID.SO AN EFFICIENT OLD IPP WITH LOW CAPA CHARGES (AS THE IPP IS FULLY DEPRECIATED) - WILL BE SHUT DOWN - & A HIGH CAPA CHARGE IPP WITH AN EVEN HIGHER VARIABLE COST - WILL BE OPERATED - AS THE CAPA CHARGES ARE HIGHER (& IS A SUNK COST) THE IPPs are rotating Capa charges.Say there are 10 IPPs on Oil & Gas."A" has the hghest capacity charge,so the GOP will try to keep "A" occupied - but sometimes "A" will be able to plead that due to planning issues by Grid - the Procurement could not be planned,& so, the Grid will go to "B", & A will be paid capa charges. "A" has intricate knowledge of the Grid planning process & pitfalls for power quotas "B" has lower capa charges but HIGHER VARIABLE COST(VC) . Then "B" claims planned shutdown,coal ash,coal slag & Grid goes to "C". "B" will not get Capa charges - but C has an EVEN HIGHER VC THAN "B" ! WHY IS GOP ALLOWING THIS ?

Y is PSO not in the IPP business ? SHENHUA ENERGY,THE LARGEST COAL MINER IN PRC IS ALSO A POWER GENERATOR ! Y ? THE CHEAPEST WAY TO TRANSPORT COAL IS AT ZERO COST ! & THAT IS TO CONVERT COAL, INTO ELECTRONS,BY MAKING POWER ELECTRONS TRAVEL AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT - IT CAN REACH THE MOON BEFORE U SAY JACK ROBINSON OR JACK NICHOLSON OR JOHNNY DEPP OR AMBER ALSO POWER IS MADE AT COAL PIT HEAD SO ALL COSTS & LOSSES IN STORAGE,HANDLING,BLENDING & WASHERIES IS ZERO OR MINIMISED PSO SHOULD IMPORT CRUDE,REFINE TO RFO & DIESEL, & MAKE POWER - INSTEAD OF SENDING FUEL TO IPPs & THEN PAYING IPPs CAPA CHARGES THE GRM & DISTILLATE MARGINS & THE POWER MARGIN WILL OBVIATE THE NEED FOR CAPA CHARGES. THESE CAPA CHARGES ARE NOT THE FAULT OF A POLITICIAN OR A BUREAUCRAT, THE GERMINATION OF THIS IDEA WAS TO DOOM PAKISTAN.TERROR WAS THE DIVERSION,WHEN OIL RATES WERE LOW - TO ALLOW THESE CAPA CHARGES & POWER SECTOR TO BECOME A CANCEROUS LEECH, THIS IS A MAN MADE VIRUS - WITH NO VAX ! dindooohindoo
