Customers of Karachi-Electric (KE) may see even higher electricity costs the following month as a result of the anticipated Rs. 6 per unit increase in power pricing.

The funds will be collected from customers between April and June 2023, assuming approval. Earlier this month, NEPRA gave power distribution firms and KE permission to charge consumers up to Rs. 14.24 per unit in postponed fuel adjustment surcharges for an eight-month period from March to October 2023.

Domestic protected consumers who use 0-200 units per month will pay Rs. 10.34, non-protected consumers who use 0-200 units will pay Rs. 14.24, those who use 201-300 units per month will pay Rs. 14.24, and private agricultural users will pay Rs. 9.90 per unit.

The authority also gave KE permission to charge consumers Rs 13.87 per unit as the deferred fuel adjustment surcharge between March and October of 2023. Domestic protected consumers who use 0-200 units per month will pay Rs. 9.97, non-protected consumers who use 0-200 units will pay Rs. 13.87, those who use 201-300 units per month will pay Rs. 13.87, and private agricultural users will pay Rs. 9.90 per unit.
