KARACHI: K-Electric (KE) consumer electricity rates dropped 4.12 rupees per unit, the National Electricity Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) said Friday.
According to a NEPRA statement, KE executives have been ordered to assist consumers in September’s electricity bill, so the tariff reduction will be reflected in next month’s bill for consumers in Karachi.
NEPRA said electricity prices fell as part of July’s oil price hike (FPA).
The notification also stated that after the electricity tariff reduction, KE consumers will receive relief of Rs 7.4 billion.
Earlier, after the government decided to waive the Fuel Adjustment Fee (FCA) on electricity bills for households that consume up to 200 units or a load of five kilowatts, KE announced that the revised bill would be out on August 26.
On August 24, Minister of Energy, Kurram Dastkir Khan Explain that only households using less than 200 units of electricity are exempt from fuel fines (FCA).
