NEA proposes to revise power tariff rates for households

Electricity Tariff Revision Nepal

In a bid to ramp up electricity consumption, Nepal Electricity Authority has prepared a draft ‘consumer tariff rate’ reducing power tariff levied on households.

This is the first time that the power utility has proposed a tariff rate aimed at encouraging household consumption in contrast to its earlier policy targeting minimum use of electricity.

Stating that while the per unit rate of electricity rises along with the quantum of consumption at present, the draft has proposed reducing the rate as consumption increases, informed Prabal Adhikari, spokesperson for NEA.
