They are preparing another device to reduce the price of energy

The government had material difficulties in subsidizing energy rates and public services, not only because of the environmental limitations Agreement for Tariff Justice in the electricity sector in the scenario of marked growthand because no new measures have been issued.

(In times of high prices five tips to save energy).

This is accompanied by a recent warning from the Council of State, which suspends the decision by which President Peter seeks to resume the functions of the two regulatory commissions. But the alternative is to achieve an object that is being cooked on another front.

It is, according to sources revealed to Portfolio, to do it through the National Development Plan (PND); to which mechanism would be used the application of the social investment scheme, with resources from the General System of Royalties (SGR) or even from the General Budget of the Nation (PGN).

In addition, it is a figure that is already in the current organization and for this, according to the consultants, in the preparation of the presentation of the proposal, which will begin to be discussed in Congress, the article is expected to include expressly. This covers the possibility.

(They are called auction capacity expansion for power generation).

Specifically, according to what Portafolio has learned, the idea is to obtain subscriptions that this company can market. users of layers 1, 2 and 3 represent more than 80% of customers; applied to vessel damage, energy control and network security.

This last aspect is key, because it gradually reduces the risk of fraud and prevents resources that are lost and do not generate the expected results.

So companies throughout the country, especially those in the regions Caribbean, Cauca, Caquetá, Nariño and Huilawhich are the most diligent losses and in their bills they enter this part, they will continue to do in the investment fund.

But to define the time, these funds should be paid by the users, but rather should come from the treasury or be approved by Ocad, the bodies that evaluate, make viable, approve and prioritize the programs and projects that are funded by royalties.

Sandra Fonseca, president of Asoenergia, a union of large electricity consumers, declares that there are two ways to apply social investment in public services: they receive resources from regional and municipal entities, either from their own accounts or from royalty; or from the General Budget of the Nation, which will import temporary support to settle critical issues in specific markets.

For example, in January, according to data from the Superintendent of Public Services, of $808.19, which users of layer 4 were charged in the Afinia market for each kilowatt, corresponding to a total loss of $152.03. That is, an 18.8% rate.

(The power of the auction: this earth would cost black.)

Again in the air market; losses were 22.5% of the cost per kilowatt, which reached $858.37 in the first month of the year.

In the case of both companies, in January compared to December, this segment had an increase. For Afinia, the service supervision data shows an increase of 5.9% and 2.08% for Air-e.

However, Fonseca points out that the support must correspond to each point lost and recovered in order for the system to be efficient and effective.

According to the expertise of several years ago, non-technical energy losses, which are considered due to inefficiencies; The authors were not recognized, but they allowed the change to be made in the 2018 methodology and system of the Caribbean region. OR’The location, which was connected with the inflationary spiral of the last year and a half, was stimulated by the bills, especially the Maritime Letters.

This increase in the cost of a kilowatt of 27.4% in one year served in the Afinia market and in the case of Air-e this figure is 19.2%. These figures are above the national average of growth, which is double digit 15.2%.

It has been requested that the rates of subsidies be frozen

Due to the high prices, the mayor of Medellín and the president of the Board of Directors of the EPM Daniel Quintero, asked the President Gustavo Petro for the approval to freeze the goods.

This request was made within the scope of the regular functions that the President resumed by decree 227; which, however, was cautiously suspended by the Council of State.

While caution is being taken, all tasks will once again be in the hands of the Energy and Gas Regulatory Commission, which will now evaluate this possibility.

Jorge Carrillo, manager of the company, explained that one of the possibilities that analysts have to do this is to increase the minimum consumption of subsistence, which is the support on the ground.

If it were increased, there would be a higher percentage of the subsidy.
