‘KESC to prove increased production’

Express April 21, 2010

KARACHI: National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) has asked the Karachi Electric Supply Corporation (KESC) management to prove its increase in power generation capacity, if it wants the approval to increase tariffs.

According to the data made available to NEPRA, KESC’s new management has increased the power generation capacity by 95 megawatts while the utility’s new management claims it has been increased power generation by 450 MWs. “You have to provide details of this visible discrepancy in the data,” said NEPRA’s Maqbool Ahmad Khawaja to the KESC officials.

NEPRA Vice Chairman Ghiasuddin Ahmad chaired the hearing that was convened to invite comments on KESC’s review petition on NEPRA’s determination of power tariffs and for an increase in security deposit rates.
