Guatemala Increases Control Over Electricity Distributors
Real estate developers will have to inform the regulating entity of electric infrastructure donated to distributing companies.
Thursday, August 13, 2009
The National Electric Energy Commission, known as CNEE for its Spanish initials, expects regulation to be ready by the end of the year, for keeping record of electric infrastructure contributed by real estate developers when connecting to the grid.
The Public Utilities Regulatory Authority has authorized energy companies who operate in the same area, to compete with each other for new customers.
Of the 600MW required, the National Electric Energy Commission has only awarded 421MW because the other bidders did not meet the maximum price established in the tender.
Tariffs have been published which set the value at which distribution companies can charge for electricity.
Distributing companies will have to purchase 4 years worth of energy supply, instead of the 2 years required today.
