No plans for change in net metering system: Khurram Dastgir

Energy Minister Khurram Dastgir has said that there are currently no plans for changing the net metering system and that no modifications are being made for home solar energy customers.

On Saturday, Khurram Dastgir said during a news conference that the fuel price increase will be reduced starting in October.

The minister regarding the high cost of electricity stated that fuel adjustment charges would significantly decrease starting in October, and electricity bills would start to reflect this.

He also mentioned that power bills will significantly fall by December.

Khurram discussed his travel to Dadu, Sindh to observe power operations amidst the current flooding crisis and the steps taken to prevent any breakdown in power generation caused by flood waters.

He claimed that due to the stagnant flood water, the lack of electricity in Sindh is currently only present in a few tehsils.

According to Khurram Dastgir, attempts are being made to bring power to Sindh and Balochistan.

The Dadu Grid Station is in danger of flooding, but every precaution is being taken to ensure its safety, he said, adding that the flood-affected power system has been fully restored and that officials from the relevant district administration and the Ministry of Energy have done a ‘fantastic’ job.
