Rates increase this Wednesday and the impact on tickets will be felt in May

He National Gas Regulatory Entity (Enargas) has prepared the resolution with the new tariff tables, which will be published in the Official Gazette.

This increase will affect all residential, commercial and industrial users, although it will vary in magnitude. An increase of at least 150% is expected, with the possibility of reaching more than 300%.

The new gas values

The Ministry of Energy revealed last week the new values ​​that users must pay for the cost of gas production starting this month.

According to the information provided, on average, high-income households will see their electricity bill increase $2961 to $9271; those with low incomes, $838 to $2462; and those with middle incomes, $1975 to $6375. However, this component constitutes only one of the three factors that impact invoices.

Enargas will publish the increases corresponding to the transportation and distribution components, which represent about 35% of the total cost of the invoices.

These rates apply to companies responsible for the transportation and distribution of gas from production centers to homes. This increase will be uniform for all users, since there is no segmentation in these invoice components.

If all these increases materialize, rates in the Buenos Aires metropolitan area (AMBA) could increase an average of $8000 in a monthwithout taking into account the reduction of subsidies established by the Ministry of Energy.

Although the adjustment requests made by companies are not binding, some type of increase is anticipated, given that most companies reported losses last year due to the freezing of their income in a context of high inflation.

The entity that regulates gas is expected to approve a 350% increasewhich would imply a increase in the final rate of at least 70%.

Electricity rates: ENRE authorized new rate tables for Edesur and Edenor users

He Electricity Regulatory Entity (ENRE) published through Resolutions 198/2024 and 199/2024 the new tariff tables for distributor users Edenor and Edesur.

In both standards, the body in charge of the auditor Darío Oscar Arrué It was considered essential to subdivide the T1-R category referring to Small Demands for Residential Use, into new consumption blocks.

Before they were only measured R1 to R4. But due to a shift that would reach a rate of 400% for R4, it was decided to modify the structure of the T1-R Rate, opening the categories R3 and R4 and incorporating two additional blocks called R5 and R6.

Therefore, from now on the following categories will be taken into account:

  • T1-R1 for consumption between 0 and 150 kWh/month.
  • T1-R2 for consumption between 150 kWh/month and 400 kWh/month.
  • T1-R3 for consumption between 401 kWh/month and 500 kWh/month.
  • T1-R4 4 for consumption between 501 kWh/month and 600 kWh/month.
  • T1-R5 for consumption from 601 kWh/month to 700 kWh/month.
  • T1-R6 for consumption greater than 701 kWh/month.

“As a result of such modification, the Own Distribution Costs (CPD) assigned to fixed and variable charges reflect in a more progressive way the costs of the provision based on the monthly consumption of electrical energy,” they justified.

Therefore, the resolutions established the values ​​of the CPD and the new tariff tables to be applied for Rate T1-R Level 1, Rate T1-R Level 2 and T1-R Public Good Entities, Rate T1-R Level 3 and the values of Neighborhood and Town Club. In the case of Edenorthe new values ​​for Self-Administered Meters are also included.
