Learn how the freezing of electricity and gas rates impacted the bills of each Argentine province. SEO Title: Frozen electricity and gas rates: how much does each province pay?

The freezing of electricity and gas rates, implemented by the Government in May, has generated a disparate impact on user bills depending on the province and income category.

Income segmentation:

  • N1 (high income): They experience an average increase of 344% compared to December 2023.
  • N2 (low income): an average increase of 475% in their bills.
  • N3 (average income): an average increase of 456% in their ballots.

Differences by region:

Natural gas:

  • N1: The highest rates are found in Tierra del Fuego ($58,917), Santa Cruz Sur ($57,713) and Chubut Sur ($33,380).
  • N2: Santa Cruz ($28,231), Tierra del Fuego ($25,817) and Buenos Aires, Chubut and Río Negro ($19,018).
  • N3: Santa Cruz ($33,527), Tierra del Fuego ($31,630) and Buenos Aires, Chubut and Río Negro ($21,181).

Electric power:

  • N1: Neuquén ($65,202), Río Negro ($60,209) and Mendoza ($57,088).
  • N2: Mendoza ($28,231), Río Negro ($27,670) and Santa Fe ($28,214).
  • N3: Mendoza ($35,980), Río Negro ($35,851) and Santa Fe ($28,578).

Increasing subsidies:

The postponement of the increases has increased energy subsidies by the State, exceeding last year’s levels. It is estimated that this trend will deepen in winter due to greater consumption and higher costs.

Uncertain future:

The government has not yet defined how the rate increases will be applied to the N2 and N3 segments. A new subsidy allocation scheme based on a Basic Energy Basket (CBE) is being analyzed, but its implementation has been delayed due to difficulties in data matching.

In conclusion:

The rate freeze has had a significant impact on users’ bills, with variations by province and income category. Subsidies have increased and the future of rate increases is still uncertain.
