Govt’s tall claims of producing electricity at cheap rates prove false
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The tall claims of the government of providing electricity at cheap rates proved false as the electricity is being generated at high cost.
Instead of generating electricity from cheap sources as gas, coal and hydropower, the government is generating electricity from diesel.
The electricity which could have cost Rs 4 per unit is being generated at the cost of Rs 14 per unit.
According the documents released by the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA), only three percent electricity was produced through coal, while 250 million unit of electricity was produced from diesel.
