ISLAMABAD, Aug 31 (APP): The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) on Wednesday concluded public hearings in two separate fuel cost adjustment (FCA) proceedings for XWDISCOs and K-Electric for July under the monthly fuel adjustment mechanism.
The hearings were presided over by NEPRA Chairman Tauseef H Farooqi while member Sindh Rafique Ahmed Sheikh and member Khyber Pakhunkhwa Maqsood Anwar Khan were also present on the occasion.
The Central Power Purchasing Agency (CPPA) in the petition on behalf of X-Wapda DISCOs requested an increase of Rs4.69 per unit in tariff under FCA for the said period.
