ISLAMABAD: Following the approval of the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA), the Power Division on Tuesday issued an official notification of the winter package for making electricity cheaper.

Per notification, the discount package will be applicable from November 1, 2021, to February 28, 2022.

“The rate of Rs12.96/kWh shall be charged to domestic consumers (Non-ToU) on the incremental consumption, above monthly 300 units or above the reference consumption in the corresponding months of the reference period, whichever is greater,” it read.

Meanwhile, commercial consumers (Non-ToU) and general services consumers will be charged at a rate of Rs12.96/kWh on the incremental consumption above the reference consumption in the corresponding months of the reference period.

The notification further mentioned that Rs12.96/kWh shall be charged from domestic consumers (ToU) and commercial consumers (ToU) on the respective peak/off-peak incremental consumption, above the reference peak/off-peak consumption in the corresponding months of the reference period.

“New and existing consumers having no reference consumption available in the period of November 2020 to February 2021 shall be offered the same package at the concessionary rate of Rs12.96/kWh through benchmark consumption methodology,” the notification read.

The Power Division also mentioned that no quarterly adjustments would be applicable on incremental consumption.
