The total cost of generating electricity in the country declined by 9%, hitting Rs9.02 KWh in October 2022 compared to Rs9.91 KWh in September.

However, on a year-on-year (YoY) basis, electricity generation cost declined marginally by 3%.

“On YoY basis, the decline in fuel cost is witnessed after 22 months,” said Arif Habib Limited (AHL) in a note on Friday.

“On a YoY basis, the decrease in fuel cost is witnessed mainly due to a rise in hydel, nuclear, wind, and solar-based generation.

“On a MoM basis, the decline in fuel cost is triggered by a decline in coal (-2% MoM), RFO (-3% MoM), RLNG (-7% MoM), and gas (-1% MoM) based cost of generation."

Moreover, power generation went down by 5.2% YoY to 10,705 GWh (14,388 MW) during October, compared to 11,296 GWh (15,183 MW) during the same month last year.

On a monthly basis, generation also decreased by 16.9%, as compared to 12,878 GWh in September.

During 4MFY23, power generation decreased by 9.3% YoY to 51,786 GWh (17,543 MW) compared to 57,086 GWh (19,338 MW) during 4MFY22.

Data on generation mix revealed that electricity generation decline on a yearly basis was led by Regasified Liquefied Natural Gas (RLNG) 1,844 GWh, coal 1,657 GWh, and Residual Furnace Oil (RFO) 157 GWh, which decreased by 31.8%, 12.2% and 87.3%, respectively.

Moreover, power generation from hydel and gas sources stood at 3,144 GWh and 1,296 GWh respectively, showing a YoY increase of 19.7% and 18.6%, respectively, on a yearly basis.

In October, hydel was the leading source of power generation, accounting for 29.4% of the generation mix. Whereas, power generation from nuclear improved to 20.6%, after recording a YoY increase of 58.4% at 2,206 GWh.

Moreover, electricity generation from wind sources improved significantly by 20.3%, as the renewable source share in the power generation mix increased to 3.2% in October 2022, in comparison to 2.3% in the same month last year.

Country should use more Thar coal, which has the lowest cost of around Rs 5 per unit.

Fact Sheet Energy Mix is best solution. Wind and Solar depends on nature. The coal of local with mixing hydel share and ALTERNATIVE is only SOLUTION. No completely on imported fuel. This will wipe out our foreign exchange. When we waste our precious foreign exchane it will cost our integrity and make us baggers. Rana Amir

Fact Sheet. Now Pakistan should go all electric by focusing on large scale Thar electricity generation. This will clean our cities and save foreign exchange. Pakistan has the best opportunity to go for all electric in world because of large thar coal reserve. Rana Amir
