Residential electrical rates cut in seasonal change

With rains reducing the reliance of the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad on expensive petroleum fired generators, the nation’s regulating agency has cut electric prices to distributors and consumers.

The average cut is 13.6 percent, but average residential customers of the Compañía Nacional de Fuerza y Luz will see a 19.48 reduction, said the Autoridad Reguladora de Servicios Públicos. Cartago residents will see a 14.08 percent reduction with their local providers, and Heredia residents will see an 18.42 reduction. The reductions are based on a 200 kilowatt monthly usage.
