The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) has approved an increase in the electricity price of Rs7.9 per unit.

Nepra said it determined different consumer-end tariffs for each distribution company (XWDiscos), owing to their different revenue requirements and varying levels of technical and distribution losses allowed to them.

The per-unit price of power has been raised from Rs. 16.91 to Rs. 24.82, representing a 47 percent rise.

According to the announcement, the rise of Rs. 7.91 per unit kWh is mostly due to increases in fuel prices, capacity costs, and the effect of rupee (PKR) depreciation.

According to NEPRA statistics, the Energy Purchase Price (EPP) is expected to be Rs. 1,152 billion, while capacity charges, which include NTDC costs, are expected to be Rs. 1,366 billion.

With planned sales of 113,001 Giga Watt Hour, the total revenue need of XWDISCOs is estimated to be Rs. 2,805 billion, including DISCOs margin and Prior Year Adjustment (PYA) (GWh).
