For the quarter from February to April, tariffs will remain stable because certain variables with a direct impact on generation costs do not show significant changes.

Monday, February 3, 2020

Between -0.01% and -0.03%, variations will oscillate for EEGSA, DEOCSA and DEORSA users, informed the National Commission of Electric Energy (CNEE).

The document reviews "... Among such variables we have the international prices of fuels, especially coal for electricity generation, which has had a favorable behavior and has stabilized at lower values than those observed in previous quarters. If we consider that the electricity generation matrix has a significant component of generation with coal, it is simple to infer the positive effect on generation costs, so that the variable of the international price of coal has contributed to the stable behavior observed in user tariffs for the quarter February - April, 2020."

The report concludes that "... For the Social Tariff that applies to 2.8 million Guatemalan families, equivalent to 94% of users in the country, a stable behavior is observed without significant variations. Likewise, the Non Social Tariff applied to 6% of users in the country has no variations, maintaining a stable behavior for the quarter February - April 2020."
