Islamabad September 8 2023: National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA), after incorporating the fuel adjustments, has reviewed and assessed an increase of PKR 1.4630 per unit in the applicable tariff for XWDISCOs on account of variations in the fuel charges for the month of July 2023.
However, this increase is lower compared to requested increase of PKR 2.07 pet unit by DISCOs.
This decrease was primarily because of revision in request by CPPA-G. CPPA-G submitted that it has revised its claim downward from PKR 2.0703/kWh to PKR 1.5798/kWh. Upon inquiry, CPPA-G explained this revision is due to issuance of Authority's latest approyed FCC rates for certain power plants pertaining to the month of July 2023, which has resulted in reduction in overall fuel cost.
These charges shall be applicable to all the consumer categories except Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (EVCS) and lifeline consumers of all the XWDJSCOs.
The said adjustment shall be shown separately in the consumers' bills on the basis of units billed to the consumers in the month of July 2023 by the XWDlSCOs. XWDISCOs shall reflect the fuel charges adjustment in respect of July 2023 in the billing month of September 2023.
While effecting the Fuel Adjustment Charges, the concerned XWDISCOs shall keep in view and strictly comply with the orders of the courts notwithstanding this order.
