According to the CNEE report, after the exchange rate of the quetzal against the US dollar had a period of stability, in August and September it had a rapid and pronounced growth, which generated costs that were transferred to the tariffs set for the following months.

The document details that for the Social Tariff, variations of between 0.8% and 1.4% are observed between the periods of August-October of this year, and November 2020 - January 2021.
