ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) - The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) is likely to increase the price of electricity up to Rs4.75.

A total of 11,296GWh electricity was generated worth Rs 105.06 billion during the said period while 10,982.86 GWh net electricity was supplied to the power distribution companies (DISCOs).

Out of total generation, as many as 23.26 per cent electricity was generated from hydel, 16.69 per cent Coal, 0.51 per cent high speed diesel, 10.88 per cent furnace oil, 9.67 per cent local gas, 23.93 per cent RLNG, 12.33 per cent nuclear and 1.64 per cent Wind.
