SANTIAGO.- According to the National Energy Commission (CNE), Electricity bills are expected to rise an average of 13.6% for clients that are regulated by the Sistema Interconectado del Norte Grande (SING), which controls the area of the nation ranging from Tal Tal north.


Meanwhile, clients that are regulated by the Sistema Interconectado Central (SIC), between Tal Tal and Chiloé, will see an average variation of -1.6% in their electricity bills starting this week.


The CNE explained that the changes come as a result of the combined effects of electricity price indexing as well as new sub-transmission fees.


With the new prices, electricity bills are expected to go down for more than 64 % of the nation’s population.
