Businesses will also face increases in public services. In case of Waterfallbetween November and March 2023, more than 300,000 companies, industries or customers who carry out an economic activity will see their bills increase by 250%. electricitythe Government still does not communicate what the increases will be for both families and for the rest, but a first estimate indicates that the increase will not fall below 20%.

This was reported by the executive there will be no tariff increases on the gas bill for businesses. And the Secretary of Energy still does not explain what the increase in electricity (electricity) distribution tariffs will be. In the case of business customers – they are called “general” – invoices will have an increase of 20%, for example in Tucumán. In that locality, the average bill for residential homes is around $ 4,000 per month.

Aysa, the water and sewage provider for the city of Buenos Aires and the suburbs, has reported that it will carry out increases in up to 300% for “non-residential” customers.. These are over 300,000 customers who are not families. is approx companies, industries or accounts who use public services for profit.

The average tax-free monthly bill of an Aysa “non-residential” customer averages $ 2,800 without tax, according to the company. That client will have three bimonthly increases of $ 1,400 each, starting in November. In June 2023, the bill will reach $ 7,000 (excluding tax), according to Aysa data. The increase is 250%.

Compared to current values, the price of the benefit will have almost tripled. It is one of the ways the company has chosen to reduce its fiscal deficit.

In the case of commercial customers of the electricity distribution service, information in the Government is scarce. Distributors also do not have data on this, as explained in many of them.

Generic (non-commercial) customers fall into four categories. If they consume up to 150 kWh per month, they are C1. Between 150 kWh and 300 kWh they are C2. Between 300 kWh and 1,000 are C3. And from 1000 kWh onwards they are C4.

In Tucumán, for example, a C1 invoice will go from $ 2,300 to $ 2,600, again considering the month of August. In the first case, it is without elimination of subsidies and in the second, with elimination. A C2 ticket will range from $ 4,400 to $ 5,000. A C3 client will go up from $ 11,400 to $ 13,600. The C4 (high consumption levels) will go up from $ 51,000 to $ 62,000. With these indicators, the average increase is 30%.

But the prices in Tucumán exceed those in Buenos Aires. Now they are more than double. While an average bill (300 kWh of monthly consumption) is about $ 4,400 in that province, Buenos Aires and the suburbs (where Edenor and Edesur operate) is $ 1,800.

Although the cost of electricity is the same throughout the country, distributors in each locality have had different luck when it came to adjusting the margin of their service, called “distribution added value”. Almost all distributors in the country have made progress in re-compositions in this aspect, where Edenor and Edesur have been demoted.

In the sector it is striking that there are data on gas and water, but little data on the distribution of electricity. There is a suspicion that the Government has not yet taken all the definitions in this regard.
