In the midst of the cold wave, it is essential to understand how a bill of gas and how much different appliances consume to heat a home. Through a statement, the company Camuzzi revealed the key factors to determine the value of the gas rate.

As explained by the gas distribution company, the three variables to take into account to analyze the bill are the segment in which the user is registered, the consumption category and the rate subzone.

The registration of subsidies to the gas rate

As a first measure, to understand the gas bill it is important to take into account the Registry of Access to Energy Subsidies (RASE), which established a subsidy segmentation regime for residential users, which divides them into three, according to household income, measured in total basic baskets (CBT).

Depending on the segment in which the user is registered, they will or will not receive different subsidies on the price of gas at the wellhead, incorporated in the current tariff tables. High-income users are part of N1, low-income users are included in N2, and middle-income users are categorized as N3.

The subsidy segment, the consumption category and the tariff subzone are the three main factors that define the value of the gas tariff.

On the other hand, the rate table is modified according to the user category. At this point, residential users are classified into eight categories: R1, R21, R22, R23, R31, R32, R33, R34. These categories group users with similar consumption volumes, are variable and are defined in each billing period. In this way, users who consume less gas have a cheaper rate applied.

While for the final construction of the tariff table, a third variable must be taken into account: the tariff subzone, which represents completely different tariff values ​​and user determination thresholds depending on the location of residence.

How does the Camuzzi consumption simulator work?

Each device has a different consumption. For example, a small 2,500 kcal/h stove, the most common in rooms, turned on for 8 hours a day, consumes almost 134m3 in a two-month period. Meanwhile, a kitchen burner turned on 4 hours per day consumes approx. 40m3; and a water heater, calculated for a house with 2 people, consumes approximately 67.80m3.

Knowing the cost of the devices allows us to evaluate their use, and saving measures in case consumption is required to be reduced. To do this, Camuzzi made available to its users a “Consumption Simulator” per device, which allows the exercise to be carried out in a simple way to obtain the approximate value of the bill.

It should be noted that there are also special categories of users that contemplate different subsidies, such as the social rate and the rate for public good entities. Likewise, the “Cold Zone” benefit was expanded starting in 2021 to homes in Argentine towns and provinces according to their own climatic conditions, offering bonuses of between 30% and 50% depending on the region.
