ISLAMABAD: The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) agreed on Tuesday to slash power tariff by Rs2.08 per unit, Express News reported.
The announcement was made by Nepra on request of the Central Power Purchasing Agency.
The revised rate would not apply on users consuming less than 50 units of electricity per month as well as to K-electric customers.
The tariff cut is expected to reflect in bills generated in June and is a result of the fuel prices that have gone down in the international market.
The recent power crisis in Sukkur has made residents distance themselves from appliances, such as refrigerators and water dispensers, and switch to traditional earthen water coolers.
