ISLAMABAD – A sigh of relief for the load-shedding-stricken public, as the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) announced Wednesday to reduce electricity price by Rs 4.35 per unit.
The Central Power Purchase Agency (CPPA) requested price cut on electricity to NEPRA. The reduction has been made in respect of monthly fuel adjustment for the months of February and March.
Rs 2.15 have been reduced for the month of February and Rs 2.20 for the month of March, which will give net relief of Rs 32 billion to the users.
The decision will be implemented on users of all electricity distribution companies except K-electric. Furthermore, agriculture users and those who consumed only 300 units will not be benefited from this decision. The consumers will be given relief from next month.
