KARACHI: K-Electric has launched a fuel cost adjustment (FCA) calculator on its website which will allow consumers to calculate the impact on their monthly bill based on their consumption.

A spokesperson for the power utility has said that the pending FCA as determined by the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) would be applied from January 2020 onwards, spread over nine months.

He said that the FCA was based on the notification issued by Nepra that defines both the amount and the period over which the amount was to be adjusted. All details related to FCA would also be provided in respective customer bills.

The spokesperson said that as per Nepra mechanism, fuel was a pass-through cost to customers of all power distribution companies, including KE, in the country.

According to the mechanism, he said, a reference fuel cost was considered in determining the tariff and any increase or decrease in actual fuel price compared to this reference cost was adjusted after verification by Nepra, which was subsequently passed on to the consumers.
