REVIEW OF TARIFF FOR PAKISTAN COAL POWER PROJECT (Published)

This paper finds that NEPRA has approved 65% expensive tariff for new coal fired power plants in Pakistan. For the 6,600 MW power plants that will be installed in Punjab province, Pakistani people will pay extra USD 2.2 Billion in a year and USD 66.88 Billion over the next 30 years period of contract. Government should cancel this tariff and manage the tariff on case to case basis by following International Competitive Bidding process and keeping in mind the international standards and industrial prudent practices.
