On new imported fuel-based power projects, federal government is making opinion to a blanket ban as at present the energy mix is based on hydel, local coal, nuclear, solar, wind and LNG. The government is extremely focused on the decentralization of power from center to provinces.
Considering the emergent situations, the federal government is also considering to convert the power purchase agreement of Hubco’s 1200MW old plant set into a 300-600 million imperial gallons per day. The key principle is not to recover the added cost of previous inefficiencies from
paying customers in the tariff. Also, all government-owned power generation companies, not reserved for super annuation would be judged for operation and management contracts to private sector under an improvement-sharing payment structure.
