Cartago residents given a cut in electrical rates

Cartago residents will be getting a reduction in their electrical rates, but residents of Alfaro Ruiz will be paying a bit more, according to rates published by the nation’s price fixing agency.

The Junta Administrativa del Servicio Eléctrico Municipal de Cartago sought a 17.6 percent increase but the application was lacking in certain required details, said the agency, the Authoridad Reguladora de Servicios Públicos. So a rate cut was ordered. The amount for 2012 is about 1.9 percent. For 2013 the reduction is about 8 percent of the current rate.

The Coopealfaro Ruiz R.L sought a 14.98 percent increase but the price agency approved just 1.2 percent.
