K-Electric has requested approval from the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority to collect an additional Rs6.636bn ($44m) from its customers at a rate of Rs4.49 per unit for electricity consumed in March. The regulatory authority will examine whether the additional cost estimate is justified or whether a lower charge should be applied. The authority will also consider whether the company followed an economic merit order in its use of external and own power purchases. Last month, the authority subscribed to a 58 paise per unit increase in fuel costs for February, rather than the Rs1.66 requested by K-Electric. The increase, if approved, will affect all customers excluding agricultural consumers, electric vehicle charging stations and domestic customers consuming under 300 units.
