Its fact about the power sector of Pakistan that it is a combination of thermal and hydro units which is conquered by (WAPDA) across Pakistan, except the Karachi (K-Electric) that is for the Karachi city and the nearby areas. Moreover, numerous independent power plants are working that significantly contributes to the production in Pakistan. Electricity in Pakistan is produced in a variety of ways. In 2018 as fuel prices are going up and down, so the price of Electricity per unit is also varying with this fluctuation. This will must effects on overall tariff rates, although the government is able to give more subsist to all customers. Due to terrorist and other crisis they able to down up to only 2.89 rupees per unit. While for industrial and agriculture users these rates are different. A rough idea of home tariff rates is given as:
Nepra Rates for user of 200 Units: 11 Rupees – Subsidy 2.89 = 8.10 Rupees
Above 200 Units Users: 11 rupees – Subsidy 0.800 =10 Rupees
Above 300 Hundred Units: 14 Rupees
Main electricity producers are thermal power, hydropower, wind power, solar power, agricultural power and nuclear power among these most of electricity is produced from thermal and hydro power but these plants convert’ very low efficiency and sometimes becomes very expensive to operate and maintain.
Its need to invest in those plants that give maximum output by using natural resources like hydro one or they can establish efficient production plants to get maximum output. As govt is determined to take off this crisis and this is in their manifesto they must take these kinds of steps in upcoming days.
Electricity per Unit Price in Pakistan 2018 Tariff Rates
Although this is a really good step for an ordinary electricity user because its results are going to lower level. Particularly those home users who are constantly taking care of their usage. Because the highest advantage is declared for the users of 200 Units.
This detail is taken from the official site of Lesco Lahore, maybe other distribution companies made minor changes in them.
If oil prices will never go up then these electricity tariff rates must be going down per Unit Price in Pakistan for upcoming days of 2018. Because now the opposition has also come in the ground and they insist to take it more down according to the downfall of oil price. Hope so one must get results from it.
