With this methodology, increases in electricity generation and distribution rates are foreseen, allowing adjustments to be made automatically to the tariffs of the electricity generation system of the Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE). These adjustments, made each quarter, generate direct variations, increases or decreases in billings and applies to all subscribers or users of the 8 distribution companies in the country.
