DEFICIT TARIFARIO access rates: NOMINAL and REAL quantification of the difference between both rates the nominal fee is paid periodically based on what has been published in the Official Gazette and the real rate is what it costs us exactly, includes, therefore, the deferred part of the fare and is due to the deficit generated. Knowing the difference between both rates, provides us with the correct information for the cost of energy for consumers and on the other hand we also provides, which is the level of degradation that has our system, in relation to the assigned costs and revenues. (Not to be confused with Frank Howard!). Rate deficit, involves only access fees and although these are differentiated by each step of supply voltage, is relatively easy to make a first approach, through consideration of the average access rate. The average access rate scheduled for the year 2010 is 5.25 c/kWh, (NOMINAL fee) with a planned demand for consumption of 242.286 GWh. What provides (5.
25 * 242. 286) revenues of 12.623 M. On the other hand, planned expenditures are 16,089 m represents a deficit of: 3,466 M or in other words the real rate is 6.64 c / KWh (REAL rate) (16.089/242.286) (the rate of real access electrical system is 26.5% higher than the nominal fee, therefore this percentage is that postponing. We should highlight the simplicity of these variables when it comes to understanding and make transparent the system and also to be able to follow changes in the estimates or actuals. It must be borne in mind that the data that facilitate the Administration and the regulator are for an annual period, without knowing data with one minor breakdown. Semi-annual revisions of tariffs, the Administration often modify their forecasts, as well as own rates of access.
