Edesur also argued that the tariff freeze distorted the concession contract by omitting the application of the new tariff schedules and “reserving rights for differences in future income not received.” The company also considered that the tariff schedules were insufficient to cover the costs and investments to “guarantee the provision of the public service of the required quality” and added that if the scenario were not changed, the sustainability of the public service would be put at risk.
