Cartago electrical utility fails to win rate hike

The nation’s utility regulating agency says it has rejected a request for a 3.4 percent increase in rates by the Junta Administrativa del Servicio Eléctrico Municipal de Cartago. The rate-fixing agency, the Autoridad Reguladora de Servicios Públicos said that the utility did not provide information that separated out the various services it provides.

The agency appears to want various classes of users considered separately based on the income cost of providing electricity to each group.
